Tonawanda, N.Y. (WKBW) - Trouble is brewing at a local Halloween attraction.

Police arrested two people on opening night at FrightWorld in Tonawanda, and now a 10-year-old boy claims he was attacked there.

10-year-old Carter Scott says he was punched in the nose and face by a stranger who tried to steal his money.

"I am angry a 10-year-old boy has to get assaulted going to this venue and they are not beefing up security," said Carter's mother, Erin.

While the Scott family has not filed a police report, Channel 7 has received messages and phone calls with similar stories of violence at the Halloween attraction.

Town of Tonawanda Police arrested a 16-year-old for assault and a 20-year-old for trespassing at FrightWorld on Friday night.

FrightWorld's General Manager, Stephen Szortyka, told Eyewitness News that the Scott family never notified him about the incident.

"Obviously, if this had been brought to our attention, actions would have been taken immediately," said Szortyka.
