Police Chief Bill Scott said Saturday's demonstration started out peaceful in downtown San Francisco over the death of George Floyd, but as night fell, there were bursts of looting and vandalism.

"We can't just sit by and let you destroy our city," Breed said at a Sunday morning press conference.

Looters smashed into stores around the Union Square shopping area and brazenly stole merchandise. Molotov cocktails were thrown, sometimes at police officers, Police Chief Bill Scott said.

Police charged 10 suspects with felony looting, Scott said. And on Sunday several people were arrested at a protest outside City Hall that had been declared an "unlawful assembly" as it violated the city's 8 p.m. curfew that had been in place. 

People who are homeless are exempt from the order, although city workers are trying to move unhoused residents off of the streets, Breed said.
