Carbondale Police Officers responded to a large fight in the 800 block of West High Street around 9:45pm Saturday. Officers found a group of approximately 300 people that were attending a sporting event. The fighting ended and no one cooperated with the investigation at the scene. There were reports that a knife was used during the fight, however, officers did not locate any weapons and no one reported any injuries while at the scene. One juvenile victim met with officers later at the police department and reported a minor injury that did not require medical attention. The investigation is active and ongoing.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact Carbondale Police Department or the Crime Stoppers tip line at (618) 549-COPS.
