Two Injured in St. Paul Street Fight
A brawl in St. Paul's East Side sent two men to the hospital with stab wounds. The Star Tribune reports that the vicitms, a 15-year-old boy and 21-year-old man, sustained wounds from a sickle at about 10:15 p.m. outside of a house in the 1200 block of Bush Avenue. Kare-11 reports:
"Police believe there were 30 to 50 people involved and that the fight is possibly gang related. But those who live at the house say they were having a simple family gathering, a birthday party for a cousin, when uninvited guests started showing up thinking a much larger party was going on. Nyisha Baker was at the birthday party. She says people started fighting, '...because they couldn't get into the party.'"
Another 16-year-old was hit by a lawn-mower in the brawl, which witnesses claim involved dozens of people. Police have no suspects at this time.
