TOPEKA (KSNT) – Two people were sent to the hospital after a fight broke out during a movie around 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Regal Hollywood Stadium.
“Two people were going to a movie and a person in front of them was on their phone” says Lieutenant Colleen Stuart of the Topeka Police Department. “The light from the phone was distracting while the movie was playing and the person was asked to turn off the phone.”
This led to a verbal confrontation and the suspect hit the couple both in the head with an unknown object.
According to police, the theater was so dark it was unclear what the victims were hit with. According to a witness, the suspect fled from the theater before officers arrived.
KSNT received two “Report!t” emails from our viewers. One stated that ticket refunds were given for “The Young Messiah”, which was the movie being shown.
Topeka police say they have an unclear description of the suspect. A possible six-foot, male. If you have any information on the incident or suspect, call the Topeka Police Department at 785-368-9551.
