GREENVILLE, S.C. -

Police say a group of teenagers went on a crime spree through Downtown Greenville Wednesday night, that involved vandalism, attempted robbery and assault.

It started around 9:30 at Grill Marks on South Main Street. Police say a group of teens were caught on tape taking ketchup bottles off the tables and squirting ketchup all over the restaurant. The video shows the teens taking the bottles outside on the sidewalks and roadway.

"We literally had to hose down all the walls, hose the chairs and tables and all that good stuff," said Grill Marks Manager Kyle Marsh. "On their way out, they took all of our salt and pepper shakers, ketchup, and decided to cover the whole patio area, tables chairs, walls."

Minutes later, police were called to an attempted armed robbery at Carolina Ale House on South Main Street, and an assault and battery near Falls Park. Greenville Police spokesman Johnathan Bragg said officers patrolling the area at Falls Park managed to arrest the two individual responsible for the assault. The victim suffered only minor injuries.

"The reason we think we have these crimes to begin with was because spring break was this week," Bragg added.

Investigators believe all the teens were together at some point and possibly separated to commit different crimes. If you have any information on this crime spree, please call Crimestoppers at 23.CRIME.
