Two women charged in Walden Galleria attack

Two West Side women were arrested Monday night for attacking a 38-year-old Sanborn woman in the Walden Galleria, Cheektowaga police said Wednesday.

Amanda Dixon, 28, of Normal Avenue, and Serena Rodriguez, 20, of Plymouth Avenue, were charged with second-degree harassment for pushing and punching the woman, whose identity was not released.

It is unknown if the alleged attackers, whose actions were partially caught on a video obtained by police, knew the victim or whether it was a random assault, according to Assistant Police Chief James J. Speyer Jr.

“They just started arguing,” Speyer said. “We rounded everybody up and sorted out the story and determined that these two women were the aggressors.”
