Man glassed at Grosvenor during Fifty Shades screening
‘Besides being the worst film I have ever seen, three women got arrested’
Three women were arrested for breach of the peace after glassing a man when he asked them to keep it down.
The violent act occurred on Valentines day at the Grosvenor Cinema on Ashton Lane during a screening of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Witnesses of the incident told the Daily Record that cinema staff had to wipe blood from the seats before the next showing of the raunchy film.
There were also reports of women vomiting in the aisles.
Michael Bolton, 33, who had gone to Fifty Shades with his wife Yvonne, 32 told the Record: “Besides being the worst film I have ever seen, three women were getting arrested and put in a police van when we arrived.
“A woman came out the theatre and said that a guy had been glassed.
“One woman was in handcuffs and another two women were in tears.
“She said that three or four girls had been very loud and were shouting. The man had asked them to shut up and he was glassed.”
A spokesman also told the Daily Record inquiries were ongoing into the assault of the man, who had gone to the cinema with his girlfriend.
The spokesman said: “At around 8pm on Saturday February 14 police responded to reports of a disturbance at the Grosvenor Cinema on Ashton Lane.”
“Three women were arrested for alleged disorder offences. Inquiries continue to determine the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
“A guy who had been in the cinema said it was pretty much unprovoked and the victim was shocked.”
Police said the man was not seriously injured and did not need to go to hospital.
