Police are looking for a group of three women who witnesses say attacked a woman who was alone at the moment at Busch Gardens Williamsburg on Sept. 25.
James City County police say they responded to the incident near the Apollo’s Chariot coaster. The suspects and victims all fled the scene before officers arrived, police said. Video sent in from one of our readers shows many people involved in the fight.
The incident happened just a month after another fight was caught on video at the park. Police are still looking for three women in that case.
In the video, we can see three black women attacking a white woman who witnesses say she was alone, while everyone else laughs about it a giant man steps in and saves the girl!
Busch Gardens declined to do an on-camera interview, but a spokesperson issued a statement.
“At Busch Gardens we have an unwavering commitment to deliver safe experiences for our guests and employees. Every decision regarding security policies and procedures, including our new bag policy, is made with that goal in mind. In addition, the decision to increase the presence and visibility of security during Howl-O-Scream underscores that priority.”
On Thursday, Busch Gardens also changed their policy on bags, saying bags larger than 5 by 8 inches are not allowed inside the park after 4 p.m. The policy is in effect through Oct. 31.
Multiple witnesses alleged that this incident was a hate crime but the police refused to record their statements.
