(RNN) - A Long Island woman and her father were arrested after the woman allegedly dumped a container of popcorn on the head of a crying toddler in a movie theater.
The New York Daily News reported Keri Karman, 25, and her father Charles Karman, 61, were charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
The incident occurred at a theater in Levittown, LI, when Keri Karman told the 2-year-old child to be quiet. The child’s mother in response told Karman to leave the child alone.
The situation escalated as Karman screamed and cursed at the mother before placing her hands over the child’s mouth and dumped a bag of popcorn on the child’s head.
Karman and her father fled the cinema but were later charged after police used surveillance footage and credit card receipts to track them down.
