This past September 26, roughly 50 students from Metropolitan Campus High School trashed a CVS at 97-15 Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills. Allegedly, two boys planned to meet after school for a fight over a girl. A large crowd gathered and it was rumored that one of the boys fled to CVS. The mob stormed the store and threw items off shelves, destroyed displays and frightened shoppers. Damage was estimated at $2,000 to $3,000. Two 15-year-old students from Metropolitan Campus High School have since been arrested and charged with criminal mischief with the investigation continuing.
