Shocking footage from the scene shows cars left torched while another was sent freewheeling down a steep hill. Eyewitnesses estimate around 200 people were involved.
The incident began to escalate around 8pm on Thursday after a vigil erupted into wide scale disorder.
Welsh Parliament MP Tom Giffard said of the incident: “Absolutely disgusting behaviour by yobs.”
In a statement at around 11pm, South Wales Police said: “A number of our officers are at the scene of large-scale disorder in the Mayhill area of Swansea.
“Residents are urged to stay indoors while the matter is brought to a safe conclusion.”
