While details of the altercation remain unclear, according to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, at least 30 people were involved in the disturbance, although no arrests were made. “Police units responded quickly to prevent larger incidents from taking place,” said Rosenfeld. “It was a local matter, and did not extend beyond the two groups.”
