Two juveniles arrested for River Park brawl


Fresno police have made two arrests, tied to the violent brawl at the River Park Shopping Center. Both the suspects are only 15-years-old.

Now authorities are on the hunt for 2 others, one a juvenile and the other 22-year-old Darrius Hill.

Police say Hill remains on the loose, wanted for assault with a deadly weapon and battery and he’s no stranger to law enforcement.

Capt. Mindy Casto with the Fresno Police Department says, “He is on probation for both domestic violence and possession of a firearm. So he is a dangerous individual that we’d like to get off the streets and send a loud and clear message that crime in the streets of Fresno, especially north east Fresno and River Park will not be tolerated.”

In the shocking video you can see two young men beaten, one knocked unconscious.

Fresno police say as many as 30 people took part in the brawl on May 4.

the video shows a group punching and kicking two men, often striking them in the head.

It goes on to show a River Park security guard right in the middle of the brawl, but unable to stop it.

Fresno police say thanks to good detective work they have now arrested 2 juveniles, with gang ties, who took part in the fight.

The teens were picked up from Mclane High School and the other was picked up from Phoenix Secondary.

Since the fight, Fresno police have stepped up efforts around the shopping center – with increased patrols and patching into the video cameras from the real time crime view center.
Capt. Casto says, “Our partnership between River Park security and our real crime center downtown is phenomenal and that’s helped us tremendously in this investigation.”

If you have any information about the case, call Fresno Police at 559-621-7000 or CrimeStoppers at 559-498-STOP.

Police say the two victims are resting at home, one with broken bones in his face.
