The wit­ness, sur­named He, said she was walk­ing be­hind the em­ployee with friends when a young woman came up from be­hind and struck the back of his cos­tume’s head­piece.

“It sounded like she hit him hard,” said the wit­ness sur­named He. “She got a run­ning start and then jumped up to smack Dale’s head.”

The wit­ness He said the em­ployee mo­tioned like he was in pain. Park em­ploy­ees quickly stopped the woman from leav­ing.

Em­ploy­ees es­corted the woman from the scene. A park em­ployee told He that the in­jured “Dale” had suf­fered a mild con­cus­sion.
