Breitbart News reports:
Police said they arrested a 39-year-old woman for allegedly threatening a 30-year-old woman at knifepoint while inside the building. The 30-year-old victim did not suffer any injuries.
Police say the suspect had been accompanied by her two children when the brawl took place.
WXYZ reports that the brawl took place at the Tower Center Mall on Detroit’s west side Saturday around 7 p.m. after a crowd gathered to attend a toy giveaway for inner-city children.
The toy giveaway was part of a program called Toys Making I.M.P.A.C.T.S, which allowedneedy families to join a registry that would enable them to get free toys for their children. Nearly 6,000 people had signed up for the program by the time the event began at 4 p.m. Saturday.
Police were called to the scene to “control the crowd.”
Event organizer John Cromer said the brawl had more to do with stress than the toy giveway.
“People are already under a lot of stress,” Cromer told WXYZ.
“I want to tell you that has nothing to do with toys making impacts.”
