All five people arrested are under 18, including a 13-year-old charged with assaulting an officer.
This comes three months after a brawl involving hundreds of people caused the mall to evacuate.
The Shoppes at Buckland Hills released a statement, reading, in part, “Our highest priority every day is creating a safe environment for our community. We constantly review and evaluate our safety protocols.”
The mall is now working with the Manchester Police Department to come up with a long-term safety solution.
“It doesn’t make you feel like you can go shopping in peace. Kind of makes you feel like if you’re out with your kids and you’re gonna run some errands, that their safety could be at risk,” explained Melissa Loteczka of Manchester.
No one was seriously injured in Saturday night’s mall fight.
