Heather Piper was attacked at the Century 16 Belmar theater in Denver on September 29, 2017, for asking a group of noisy teenagers to be quiet.
CBS Denver spoke with Piper who recalled the scene. A group of teenagers was acting inappropriately in the theater, “crawling all over the seats and yelling.” Piper had asked them several times to end their behavior and when they didn’t comply, she retrieved a security guard from the theater staff.
He spoke with the teens, who were behaving as he lectured them. After he left, Piper said one of the teens got up from her seat and attacked her. She screamed and punched the side of her head, continuing to attack her until Piper’s friends ran to get help. “I said, ‘What are you doing? What’s wrong with you?’ And she lost it. She started hitting me again and then started crying saying, ‘Well you called me ghetto,’” Piper told CBS Denver.
When reporter Kelly Werthmann asked whether or not Piper had actually said that, she admitted that she probably had.
The teen fled the scene after the attack and Piper was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. She said that she had blood all over her face, clothing, and down to her shoes.
