Family Attacked After Shushing Teens in Theater

Amanda Kelley, WNEP, April 7, 2015


A woman says she just came to see a movie Easter Sunday with her family, when a rowdy group of teens sitting behind her not only harassed her family inside the theater, they allegedly assaulted some of them later in the parking lot and took off.

A black eye, a broken eye socket, and bruises all over–Cindy Santamaria-Williams says this all happened outside the Stroud Mall after an Easter Sunday showing of “Furious 7.”

“The three girls they were sitting behind us. They were very loud, rowdy. They were cursing a lot,” said Santamaria-Williams.

Santamaria-Williams told us she turned around and told the teens to quiet down.

After the movie and after complaining to management, she says those teens were waiting for her outside, along with three more girls and two teenage boys.

Santamaria-Williams told us what the girls said.

“‘When one swings, we all swing,’ and they immediately jumped on me and knocked me to the ground and punched me in the face. I think that’s what knocked me to the ground.”




Santamaria-Williams believes she saw someone recording the incident on a smart phone and is asking them to come forward.
