After Telling Teens to Quiet Down During Movie, She's Cornered by Their Friends Outside: 'When One Swings, We All Swing

"If I see them again in a line up, I know exactly who they are."

Cindy Santamaria-Williams and her sister-in-law were watching "Furious 7" at a movie theater in a northeastern Pennsylvania mall Easter Sunday when she had enough of the three teenagers seated behind her.

"They were very loud, rowdy," she told WNEP-TV. "They were cursing a lot."

So Santamaria-Williams said she swiveled around and gave 'em a good ol' shush.

But the teens continued their behavior, even harassing her and her sister-in-law in the theater despite complaints to management.

Yet that was nothing compared to what happened after the movie ended.

The three girls were waiting for the pair outside — along with some of their friends: Three more girls and two teen boys.

Then Santamaria-Williams said she was told, “When one swings, we all swing" — and then got punched in the face. She and her sister-in-law were then beaten by the group, she said.

Santamaria-Williams told WNEP she has a broken eye socket — her black eye and bruises are clearly visible.

Surveillance video produced a still image of two of the teens allegedly involved, WPVI-TV reported. Stroud Township police are investigating.

“It’s very upsetting," Stroud Mall visitor Stephen Feuer told WNEP. "And I thought that in a place like this it would be safe for people to go."

Santamaria-Williams said she's ready to help bring her attackers to justice.

“I can ID those girls," she said. "They were in my face. Their face is in my head. If I see them again in a line up, I know exactly who they are."

The family is offering a reward to anyone who comes forward with information or video that leads to an arrest, WNEP said.

If arrested, police said the teens likely would be charged with simple assault.
