An incident report says the teen charged with wearing a Joker mask inside the Century Boulder Theater was "extremely flippant" when confronted by police.
The teen told police, "oh, because of the Aurora thing?" When asked if he thought his actions would scare other movie-goers, according to the report.
According to the report, the manager told police a group of women "literally ran" from the theater. One of them dropped her phone on the way out and was too afraid to go back and get it.
The suspect told police he is from Kuwait and has only been in Colorado for about a month.
Managers of the Century Boulder have permanently banned the teen from the theater. He made his first court appearance Tuesday on menacing charges.
