Lenox Square says it is implementing news rules that will mean all shoppers under the age of 18 will need to be with an adult after 3 p.m.
The change will take effect on Sept. 21.
“Lenox Square is committed to providing a pleasant and family friendly shopping environment for all guests. The program is in response to feedback from the community and community leaders, as the center reinforces its commitment to the community to provide a pleasant, family friendly shopping environment,” the mall said in a news release.

Simon Properties, which owns the mall, said the new program is “an enhancement to our existing safety plan and to deter activity that is disruptive to our community.”
The company has seen a series of incidents involving guns over the last couple of years.
Lenox Square has already added metal detectors and K-9 units in parts of the mall to help crack down on crime there.
