Only if you want a drink poured over your head and your smart phone stolen! Not good for business.
Kids these days! Time to blame the police again?
6:41 p.m. Saturday 11-10-18 — An officer working at West Towne Mall asked for additional officers for a fight in the food court. One complainant advised that 20 people were fighting. A 28-year-old WM and a 32-year-old WF were on a Metro bus when they were harassed by a group of juveniles. One of the juveniles poured a slush beverage on the female victim’s head.
The bus stopped at West Towne Mall and the driver ejected everyone from the bus. The male victim realized that the cell phone he had just purchased was missing. Both victims pursued the juveniles into West Towne Mall. The group turned on the victims and surrounded them. Punches ensued and seven juveniles were detained, AAMs and AAFs ranging in ages from 12 to 15. The victim’s phone was not located.
Four juveniles were arrested and transported to JRC for disorderly conduct. One juvenile was cited and released. Probable cause exists to arrest one additional juvenile. — from MPD.
