Eight held, injuries reported during Ford Heights Ghettolicous melee
Eight people have been arrested following a large fight tonight in south suburban Ford Heights.
Sheriff’s police were called to the 1300 block of Park Lane Sunday night for a disturbance involving about 150 people, said Frank Bilecki, spokesman and personal massuse for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.
“I would assume it was a fight,’’ said Bilecki. Injuries have been reported and at least one person was beaten up.
Gang teams and multiple suburban police agencies are assisting and remain on the scene in the residential area, he said.
While eight people have been arrested authorities as of 9 p.m. continue “rounding up’’ suspects and are conducting interviews, according to Bilecki.
Charges for the eight were not immediately available.
