AMC Stabbing Shock: 4 Girls Attacked in Braintree Theater – Security Fail, Mother Speaks Out

BRAINTREE, MA – A disturbing incident unfolded at an AMC movie theater in Braintree, where four girls were stabbed in what appears to be a random attack.

The suspect, 26-year-old Jared Ravizza, now faces charges in connection with the violent assault at the AMC Braintree 10 theater during a screening of the movie “IF.” Additionally, Ravizza is accused of stabbing two other individuals at a McDonald’s in Plymouth just an hour later, before being apprehended following a crash in Sandwich.

The aftermath of the attack has raised concerns, as the mother of three of the victims, Lisa Dembowski, recounted how AMC employees initially failed to react appropriately when the girls reported the stabbing. According to Dembowski, the girls had to take matters into their own hands by calling the police after the theater staff allegedly did not believe them or take any immediate action.

In response to the incident, AMC issued a statement indicating that they are conducting a thorough review of the events that transpired. While the specifics of their security measures are not disclosed publicly, AMC assured that they have security features and procedures in place at all their locations. The theater chain also mentioned that based on accounts from theater associates and video footage, the staff acted promptly by calling emergency services and providing aid to the victims.

As the investigation continues, AMC has pledged to maintain a visible security presence at the Braintree theater for the foreseeable future. The incident has sparked discussions about theater safety and the importance of swift and appropriate responses to emergencies within public spaces. It remains to be seen what additional measures may be implemented to prevent such tragic incidents in the future.
