MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A haunted corn maze worker got beaten after doing his job and scaring a patron in the maze.
Agricenter, which is the group that leases the property used by Mid-South Corn Maze, confirmed that two minors assaulted a corn maze employee over the weekend.
Shelby County Sheriff's Office said the minors have not been charged with a crime but the investigation is ongoing.
The attack happened Saturday at the Mid-South Corn Maze. A teen who paid to go through the haunted corn maze hit a corn maze employee who jumped out of the corn stalks. The teens friend then joined in attacking the corn maze employee.
"I went to this corn maze a couple weeks ago," Daniel Schenck said. "It's what you anticipate, I mean you expect to be scared. There's no call to assault someone over them doing their job."
Schenck is not alone. Corn maze patrons who spoke to WMC Action News 5 said the teens should face a tough punishment.
"It's ridiculous, I hope the person who got assaulted, I hope he recovers," Schenck said. "I hope due justice is done. I don't mean to wish anything negative, but people need to learn that you can't go and assault someone and get away with it. There's repercussions to these actions."
