Mich. Family: Grandmother Assaulted at Chuck E. Cheese’s

Ronnie Dahl, My Fox Detroit, January 16, 2012

A woman is in the hospital after witnesses say she was assaulted at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in Dearborn over the weekend.

Family members tell FOX 2 the woman was celebrating her grandson’s seventh birthday Sunday afternoon when she asked patrons at a nearby table to clean up their language. “She said, ‘please don’t use that language with children,’” the victim’s daughter said. “They told her to ‘shut the f— up and turn around.’”

That’s when the daughter says a man jumped over tables and started swinging at people. “He punched her in the face and dragged her by her hair,” she added.

The 50-year-old victim was taken to nearby Oakwood Hospital where family members say she underwent a CAT scan and was treated for lacerations to her face and mouth.


The incident is the third time in recent months FOX 2 has reported violent encounters at different Chuck E. Cheese’s in the metro Detroit area.
