WAUWATOSA -- Wauwatosa police dispersed a crowd of teenagers gathering at McDonald's. It was rumored that this was the staging ground for a violent flash mob set to hit Mayfair Mall.

Mayfair Mall moved up it's teen curfew 90 minutes after hearing reports that another violent flash mob was being planned on Facebook.

Community Activist Tracey Dent is calling for parents to talk to their children, and urges teens to not participate in the flash mob. Dent says he heard about the planning of the violent flash mob on Facebook.

On January 2, 2011, nine Milwaukee teenagers were arrested after an estimated 100 teenagers rampaged through the mall from the food court to the Boston Store. There was a report of an armed robbery attempt, and a confirmed report of a gun being discharged.
