Galleria Mall Escalator Incident

Regarding the video of the escalator incident at the Walden Galleria – the parents of a 16 year old male contacted the Cheektowaga Police yesterday and reported to police headquarters with their son. The son admitted to being the one in the incident who fell from the second floor off the escalator. He was not injured but was sore. Three other boys under the age of 16 were also involved. All of them have been banned from the mall for a year. No charges will be filed against any of the boys. The Cheektowaga Police are very grateful that no one was seriously injured and thankful for the responsible actions of the young man’s parents.
