Philadelphia police ask for help identifying the people that come to a Super Bowl party into a night of raw destruction ahead of the city’s massive parade Thursday.

The police released video on Tuesday result of vandals destroying a petrol station in the South of Philadelphia in the hours after the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

The vandals are seen knocking over displays, and even a hole in the back, police said.

“They behaved like complete and utter idiots, and we will come after those people. You better believe it,” the Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told FOX29.

The police released photos of two men who allegedly used a metal pole to break a window on a A. C. Moore Arts and Crafts store on South Broad Street around 12:30 a.m. In that incident, police said the store sustained about $4,000 worth of property damage.

The city announced the Super Bowl parade starts at 11 a.m. on Broad Street near Lincoln Financial Field, where the team plays. It will move to the north along the main street, past the City Hall and finish at the art museum “Rocky Steps.” The National Weather Service said Thursday will be mostly sunny with a high of 34 degrees.

“It is a different thing in that you’re talking about large crowds, but they are mostly stationary where they are,” Ross told FOX29.

The police are planning for an attendance of up to three million people along the parade route.

Revelers along the parade route will be able to enjoy free Bud Light on two dozen bars, thanks to a promise that the beer maker made to Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson before the season.
