The bar owner said the students were taking supper at the restaurant.

After the officers had escorted everyone to the waiting police vehicles, the businessman said some officers went back to the bar and started looting.
The police were caught on CCTV camera lifting bottles of alcohol from the shelves and putting them into their jackets. They were also caught looting the cash box.
"Why did the officers return to the bar without my consent yet everyone else was in their vehicles?" said the bar owner.
