In the footage, a masked man wearing a red t-shirt can be seen casually wheeling away the appliance, which looks like a washing machine, on a large dolly.

He eyed the camera in an unconcerned way as he strolled away from one of the many ravaged Philadelphia businesses last night.

Twitter user Andy Ngô shared the clip from the Sean Hannity show and claimed that the person pictured was a "looter" as Black Lives Matter protests exploded there.

American flags were torched in New York City last night after the protests spread from Philadelphia, where dumpsters were set on fire, stores were ransacked, and violent clashes between protesters and police ensued.

The Trump administration released a statement in the early hours of Wednesday morning slamming the demonstrations.

The protests erupted after cops fatally shot Wallace, 27, who had mental health issues, and refused to drop his knife.

The White House indicated that the government was getting ready to mobilize and would "never allow mob rule" as the violence continued.

The comment comes after another night of chaos, which saw the riots and looting over his killing spread to New York and Washington DC on Tuesday after raging for a second night in Philly.

A car was filmed ramming into an NYPD barricade last night while cops tried to smash the windows with batons.

Shocking Twitter footage showed a man carrying a burning star-spangled banner through the streets of Brooklyn, where WABC reported that dozens of arrests were made and least nine NYPD vehicles were damaged.

The violence intensified in other states as rioters looted stores, set fire to rubbish bins and smashed up cars back in the ransacked Pennsylvania city.

Roughly 500 people gathered at a West Philadelphia park last night, where they chanted and marched through the neighborhood.

Elsewhere, footage showed people ransacking stores on the opposite side of the city from where Wallace was shot.

A little after 8:30pm local time, Philadelphia Police issued a warning.

It stated that a crowd of approximately 1000 was looting business in the area of Castor and Aramingo and to avoid the area.

Harrowing images showed fires in the middle of streets, while a large police presence was required at a Target and Walmart, where windows were smashed and items stolen.

Philadelphia braced itself for another night of violence yesterday as video showed cops running away from demonstrators, who appear to be throwing bottles at them.

More footage which emerged on Tuesday showed rioters hurling trash cans at a line of cops and another that showed looters sifting through trashed stores.

Shocking video footage shows demonstrators hurling garbage and garbage cans at officers in riot gear holding up a line of shields that day.
