MANHATTAN, New York (WABC) — As the sun set, the looting started once again across Manhattan as protests entered their fifth day in New York City.

Businesses on 5th and Madison avenues were spotted quickly throwing up plywood to prevent looting on Monday night. However, several businesses were vandalized and broken into.

NYPD officers were standing by shops with shattered windows like the The Nintendo Store, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Barnes and Noble. Mannequins could be seen on the broken glass-covered sidewalks.

Attempted looters clashed with police as vandals smashed into a boutique tea shop in the middle of Rockefeller Center.

Police made one arrest, tackling a man to the ground.

The looting continued further downtown where looters were caught on camera breaking into a Nordstrom Rack at Union Square

Amid the chaos all before the 11 p.m. curfew set in, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office announced Tuesday’s curfew would start at 8 p.m.

“These protests have power and meaning. But as the night wears on we are seeing groups use them to incite violence and destroy property,” de Blasio said.

Meanwhile de Blasio ducks out on approaching looting protest mob in Midtown

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was out on a quiet street in Manhattan Monday night, unrecognized except by an eagle-eyed reporter from Newsday, Matthew Chayes, who spotted the mayor getting out of his official vehicle around 8 p.m. in Midtown.

Chayes reported the mayor walked around while on a cellphone, at one point retrieving a coronavirus facemask from the car.

Chayes observed a large group of protesters coming up a nearby street and saw an aide to the mayor frantically wave a sign at a passenger window, prompting the mayor and his security caravan to pull around the corner away from the protesters who passed by unaware.

Later police chased a protest mob down the street. De Blasio was nowhere in sight.
