STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say three women attacked another woman who had asked them to be quiet inside a northeastern Pennsylvania movie theater, breaking her eye socket and leaving her with cuts and bruises.

Police on Friday released a surveillance photo of two of the three suspects.

The assault happened Sunday after a 7 p.m. showing of the film "Furious 7" at a mall near Stroudsburg.

The victim told police that the women were sitting behind her and talking loudly and cursing during the movie. She says she asked them to be quiet because her mother couldn't hear.

The victim says she complained to theater management after the movie, then left the mall with her family and ran into the disruptive patrons. She says the women began arguing with her, surrounded her and attacked.
