Large fight at Trumbull movie theater draws police response

Several police units from Trumbull and Bridgeport converged on the Bowtie Cinemas movie theater around 10 p.m. Friday after a large fight was reported at the theater, known as the Marquis 16.

A Trumbull police officer reportedly requested assistance after being assaulted at the theater and police reports in Bridgeport said that more than 100 teenagers were involved in a massive fight there. Several police officers immediately headed up from the city’s East Side to assist their Trumbull counterparts.

But most Bridgeport police units slowed their response just minutes after the call for help, because the first city officers rolling up on scene reported that the fight had broken up and teenagers were dispersing from the scene.

The identity and condition of the officer who was reportedly assaulted was not immediately available. There were no other reported injuries as of late Friday night.
