Police are looking for the people responsible for a fight at the Chuck E Cheese’s in Manchester, Connecticut over the weekend.
Two groups of people were at the Buckland Street location when Chuck E Cheese’s management said a woman bumped into another person. The groups, about 10-12 people, got into a verbal argument.
An eyewitness named Alexander Shway sent Eyewitness News video of the fight, which may be disturbing for some to watch.
While staff at the Chuck E Cheese’s asked the groups to “tone it down,” the argument turned into a physical fight and that is when the staff called 911.
There were injuries to children during the fight, police said, including a 4-year-old who was injured. Two Chuck E Cheese’s staffers were injured while trying to get children away from the fight, management said. One of those staffers needed medical attention, management added.
“A 1-year-old was knocked down, but did not suffer any injuries. There was a 4-year-old that suffered some scrapes and minor bruising but luckily was not seriously injured,” said Manchester Police Capt. Chris Davis.
Police said 911 calls started pouring in, reporting what was happening.
Chuck E Cheese’s management said one of the groups left before officers arrived at the scene.
The other group of people was escorted out of the building and Chuck E Cheese’s management said that group talked with police for a period of time before they were allowed to leave.
No arrests were made in the fight and police said they want to talk to the other group.
“I can’t picture myself going back in there after that. That’s ridiculous,” said Chassidy Alvarado. “That was ridiculous. It was horrible. I would never in my life imagine anything happening especially here in Manchester.”
Chuck E Cheese’s released a statement on the incident.
“We work really hard to make sure we provide a wholesome, safe environment for our guests and their children. Unfortunately some things are out of our control, but we follow a really strict process to ensure the safety of all our guest and cast members [staff],” the statement read.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Manchester Police Department at 860-645-5500.
