The parties were again separated by Regal Cinema employees. One of the juveniles had to be pulled off the woman, who was lying on the ground.

A juvenile referral will be filed on the behalf of both juveniles for simple assault, disorderly conduct and harassment through Northampton County's juvenile court system.

Police did not release the girls' names because of their age.
