AURORA, Ill. (WLS) -- There are new rules for teenagers at the Fox Valley Mall, after a series of fights broke out at malls across the country over Christmas weekend. The mall in southwest suburban Aurora has a new "parental escort policy."
On certain days from 4 p.m. until the mall closes, someone over age 21 must accompany children under age 18. Those supervising adults must be prepared to show security a photo ID.
The mall plans to enact the policy on days when large underage crowds are expected.
