Michelle Wetzel, General Counsel of BYC's parent organization, tells us that the two individuals had an altercation last fall and that both had been at the center at the same time on several occasions since.
On Monday, though, the two had a "disagreement." Even after BYC staff asked the woman to leave the man alone, the female participant approached the man again and "they had words," Wetzel tells us. The woman "then said she felt 'unsafe' with the male participant and she wanted to call the police. Staff encouraged her to do so."
Wetzel says that the center will no longer allow the two individuals to access BYC programming at the same time.
