The boy and another teen walked into the takeout store at the corner of Summerdale Avenue and E Sanger Street just before midnight Monday, police said. The owner of Kenney's Place Beer told investigators one boy tried to buy beer then became angry and returned with another boy. The duo then started trashing the store after the owner asked them for identification and they refused to show it "because they were obviously underage," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
