Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER - By JOSH SHAN­NON jshan­non@ches­pub.com

Two peo­ple were in­jured when a fight broke out on Main Street shortly after the bars closed July 27.

A po­lice of­fi­cer on rou­tine pa­trol spot­ted the fra­cas around 1:20 a.m., ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice De­part­ment.

The of­fi­cer found a man ly­ing on the ground bleed­ing near Caffé Ge­lato at 90 E. Main St., Bryda said. An­other group of peo­ple were con­tin­u­ing to fight as they headed west down Main Street.

Two peo­ple, both 21-yearold men, were taken to the hospi­tal to be treated for in­juries to their faces.

The ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that the in­ci­dent started as a ver­bal ar­gu­ment and then turned phys­i­cal, ac­cord­ing to Bryda. Other de­tails, in­clud­ing how many peo­ple were in­volved, where the men were com­ing from and what prompted the ar­gu­ment, were not avail­able.

No ar­rests have been made, but of­fi­cers are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing and talk­ing to wit­nesses, Br yda said.
