Haunted House Actor Whacked With Rubber Snake

    A Sag Harbor “Wailing” Museum Halloween haunted house turned scary on Sunday evening for one of its volunteers, a 14-year-old youth who, costumed and masked, was supposed to frighten customers as they entered.

    At about 8:45, an apparently tipsy woman and two men walked through the door. The teen followed them, as he was supposed to, but the woman turned on him, hissed ‘You’re a stalker,’ and hit him.

    One of the men grabbed the frightened teen from behind, choking him, as the woman picked up a fake snake and repeatedly whacked him with it, police said. The trio then left.

    The museum has asked Sag Harbor police for additional patrols.
