Center City Lululemon Burglarized Days After Roof Collapse

Burglars tore through a a Center City yoga and athletic apparel store early Thursday morning-- less than two days after bricks smashed through the retailer's roof, injuring three women.

Officers found the door of the Lululemon Athletica store, located at 1527 Walnut St., busted in and clothes scattered throughout the store early Saturday morning, police said.

Lululemon had been closed since Tuesday evening, when the facade of a neighboring building crashed through the roof, causing a portion of the ceiling to collapse onto three 27-year-old friends, who were inside shopping at the time.

All three woman were treated at Hahnemann University Hospital and released. One of the victims, Alli Friedman, released a statement Wednesday thanking rescuers and hospital staff for their help.

Investigators are still working to determine exactly how much was stolen in the burglary, which occurred sometime overnight.
