PARMA, Ohio (AP) — Police are searching for a group of adults who attacked employees at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in a Cleveland suburb when a manager did not respond quickly enough to a complaint about a malfunctioning photo booth.
A Parma police spokesman says six employees of the child-friendly restaurant were attacked and injured. The melee occurred around 7:15 p.m. Sunday. The assailants fled before police arrived.
Lt. Kevin Riley said Tuesday that police have a number of leads and tips and hope to make arrests in the next few days. He said at least five men attacked the employees while a dozen partygoers urged them on.
The attack apparently began after a woman told the manager a photo booth wasn’t working and the manager told her she’d have to wait.
