At least 20 people brawl in Spokane Valley street
At least 20 people were involved in a fight in Spokane Valley early today over a dispute involving a woman’s ex-boyfriend and current boyfriend.
One juvenile was arrested on an unrelated warrant, but detectives continue to investigate the early-morning melee that left one person seriously injured, according to the Spokane Valley Police Department.
Sgt. Dave Reagan said a dispute between a woman’s “two suitors” apparently led to a scheduled fight at a home in the area of East Fourth Avenue and South Sullivan Road.
One man arrived to find the other having a party with several other people, so he left and returned with his own group of friends.
“An agreed-upon fight between the two turned into a half dozen or more combatants in the street,” Reagan said in a news release. “The fight eventually moved to the Global Credit Union parking lot which is where officers found the mob when they arrived.”
Officers arrived about 4 a.m. and spent five hours tracking down participants. Major crimes detectives are assisting because of the victim’s serious injury, Reagan said.
