Police identify 2 in stunt on Galleria escalator

Cheektowaga Police said Wednesday night that they have identified two people who were seen in a video in which one person is shown dangling from the side of an escalator at the Walden Galleria.

Police said they were unsure whether any charges would be placed against either of the two people.

In the video, a person standing outside the escalator grabs the arm of another person while they’re traveling up the escalator.

Once they reach the second floor, the person dangling seemingly lets go of the other person’s arm and falls to the first floor.

Police said the incident happened March 8 after midnight, and have no information on how badly the person may have been hurt.
