"It's a normal day here [at Chuch E Cheese] today."

Wow what a normal day for Chuck E Cheese customers. This is why I worked at Discovery Zone way back when.

Chuck E. Cheese fight turns bloody
A fight between two children Saturday night at Chuck E. Cheese in the Atlantic Terminal Mall in Brooklyn turned into a bloody brawl between parents, police said.

About 8:30 p.m., two girls started to argue at the theme restaurant, popular for children's birthday parties.

A girl kicked the other child, which got their moms into a heated argument of their own.

Then, the fathers of the two girls started to argue. One of the dads was joined by two of his friends in jumping the other father.

Then two other men attending a young boy's birthday saw the beating and tried to help the victim. One of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed the father who was being beaten up and one of the Good Samaritans.

Police responding to the call arrested one of the suspects, Neron Banks, 28. He was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

The victims, 31 and 34, were rushed to King's County Hospital and were in stable condition.

Police Sunday were looking for the two other suspects, one wearing a camouflage T-shirt and blue jeans, and the other sporting a white T-shirt and a pair of white sweat pants.

Robert Woodard, the assistant security director at the mall, did not comment on the specific incident. However, he said he does not expect the mall to change its security policies because of this one incident. They do not normally search visitors to the mall.

"It's a normal day here today," Woodard said.
