According to the Independent, on Saturday afternoon five teenagers one of which was a 13-year-old girl were arrest during a machete brawl during a screening of Frozen 2 in the United Kingdom. Families were watching the new Disney animated classic when a fight broke out involving up to 100 teenagers, resulting in a mass evacuation of the complex.
In response to a 999 call reporting a machete brawl between youths during a screening of Frozen 2, dozens of Police officers were called to the complex. According to a witness “two machetes and a knife were seized” and “seven police officers left with minor injuries” such as “facial injuries” while other officers dealt with the crowds around the complex. Witnesses also said that they saw lots of young children crying.
Investigators believe the cause of the mass fight was due to an organised fight between rival groups. Five teenagers have been arrested. Including a 13-year-old girl, another girl and boy aged 14, and a 19-year-old man were held on suspicion of assaulting police officers. Another boy, aged 14, was arrested for obstructing police.
Cinema managers closed the complex for the rest of the evening and police issued a dispersal order, giving them powers to move crowds on and arrest those who refused. The Police have urged people with footage or information to come forward so suspects can be identified.
