At least six people were arrested after revelers celebrating the Giants' World Series victory rioted in the streets of San Francisco on Monday.

Rioters stormed vehicles, set fires and shattered businesses' windows, including one at the Dugout Store at AT&T Park, said Lt. Lyn Tomioka, a San Francisco Police Department spokesperson.

One officer required stitches after being injured and one police car was damaged, Tomioka said.

A video from San Francisco station ABC7 showed a large crowd setting fires and storming a vehicle, pulling its occupants out and brawling in the city's Mission District.

The official championship parade is taking place Wednesday at 11 a.m., beginning at Montgomery and Washington streets, heading southbound on Montgomery, continuing onto Market Street and ending at City Hall, Tomioka said.
