MAYS LANDING, N.J. — The Hamilton Mall reopened on schedule Sunday following an early shutdown Saturday night prompted by a number of fights.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that an incident involving teenagers outside the mall and a fight between two females inside had occurred a few hours earlier Saturday.
But at about 8 p.m. Saturday, a fight started in the food court and chairs and debris were thrown as officers were trying to escort multiple groups of juveniles out. After that, several fights broke out.
Five juvenile males and two adult males were arrested on disorderly conduct charges. A Hamilton Township police supervisor was assaulted and left with minor injuries.
Mall spokeswoman Crystal Rodriguez said there was no damage to the mall or any of its stores.
