Capt. Sekou Kinebrew said during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon that eight people have been arrested so far, and that they expect many more to come.

The suspects who were arrested after the Eagles' Super Bowl win include 20-year-old John Rigsby who was charged with flipping a car at Broad and Walnut Streets in Center City, a suspect throwing a bottle at a car, and another suspect who destroyed property.

"Brendan Lopez, along with a co-conspirator Robert Ellers, they committed an act of institutional vandalism and criminal mischief at 36th and Chestnut Streets," said Kinebrew.

Kinebrew says more arrests will be coming soon and that they are still combing through social media to find other suspects.

Kinebrew asked parents if they know their kids did something wrong, to turn them in, and for the people who did something "unruly," to turn themselves in.

"If you recognize yourself on these videos, if you are a parent and recognize your child or loved one on these videos, the best thing to do is just go ahead and turn yourself in," said Kinebrew.

Police are still searching for suspects after a flash mob looted a Sunoco gas station on the 800 block of South Street.

Crews have been working to clean up the destruction caused by some rowdy fans after Sunday night.

Several poles were also taken down during the celebration.
