According to Malvinia… The teens took candies and cookies off her gingerbread houses. When she told them to stop they refused. She ordered them out of the shop, but they refused and started throwing baked houses on the floor.
The teens fought her when she tried to get them to leave. In self-defense, Malvinia tried to hit them with a baking pan from the oven. They pushed back and Malvinia called for help. The teens fled the scene before the neighbors arrived.
According to Hansel and Gretel… They admit they did touch the gingerbread houses, but only to admire them. When Malvinia came after them, one of the houses was knocked on the floor.
Malvinia pulled out a large pan from the oven and tried to push Gretel into the pan. Hansel and Gretel ran from the shop but realized after running they had no place to go.
A police car pulled over and the officer questioned them. They were taken into custody and were later identified by Malvinia Crueller. They were charged with aggravated battery, criminal mischief, and petit theft.
