A fight following a Fort Bragg quinceañera resulted in the arrest of six teens, reported Fort Bragg police Tuesday.
As many as 11 teens and adults were involved in the melee, which occurred late Saturday night, reported Fort Bragg Lt. John Naulty.
Officers began investigating after being called early Sunday to Mendocino Coast District Hospital regarding an injured teen.
The victim said he'd been at a 15th birthday party on Harold Street and afterward a fight broke out a few blocks away on Maple and Corry streets, Naulty said.
The victim, who was treated and released, had been injured in the fight by a sharp object but officers weren't sure what it was.
People involved haven't been cooperating with the investigation, said the lieutenant.
Monday morning officers had identified most of the people involved and arrested the six teens, ages 15-17, on suspicion of being involved in the fight.
They were cited and released to their parents
Officers have asked the Mendocino County District Attorney's Office to determine if arrests are warranted for five adults they suspect participated.
