UPDATE: The person attacked at an AMC Theater in Florida earlier this month in a dispute over reserved seats has spoken out in regards to the incident.

NBC Miami interviewed the unidentified patron, who stated he suffered a damaged nostril within the combat.

“I couldn’t even get a defensive shot in,” the person informed NBC Miami. “It happened so fast, he basically sucker-punched me is what he did.”

The 63-year-old sufferer, who wished to stay nameless, stated he and his spouse bought VIP tickets for Insidious: The Crimson Door on the AMC Pompano Theater in Florida on July 10. The deal contains superior seat choice.

The person claims he politely requested the individual occupying his reserved seats to maneuver to a different part. In accordance with NBC Miami, he was rebuffed, so the sufferer began to search for a seat elsewhere whereas the aggressor “just kept staring.”

“As I’m walking away, he said ‘go run to your wife little boy,” the sufferer stated. “I turned around and I said, ‘You know I’m not the one who’s being a little boy, you took my seats and you didn’t apologize or you didn’t say thank you and I let you keep them.’”

That’s when the bodily combat began.

“He jumped up, he wanted to fight me, he backed me up, I fell over the stairs and as soon as I fell down the stairs, it was like a boxer being against the ropes, this guy just went to town on me,” the sufferer informed the outlet.

The sufferer was taken to a close-by hospital and obtained stitches, he stated.
