NH family fun center evacuated following ‘prank’

ROLLINSFORD, N.H. — Officials are investigating after they say someone sprayed either bear or pepper spray inside of Dover Bowl, Sunday.

The building needed to be evacuated as a result of the spray. A number of people told officials on scene they had trouble breathing and didn’t feel well, but no one was transported to the hospital, according to Rollinsford Fire Chief Mark Rutherford.

Officials tell Boston 25 News they believe that this incident is the result of a prank. Police are now reviewing surveillance video to see if they can identify the person responsible.

Dover Bowl — a family fun center that includes bowling, food, and poker — was shut down for the remainder of the night.
