HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Police are investigating a brawl involving 40 to 60 teens that happened in Hamden on Saturday night.
Hamden police say that at around 9 p.m., officers responded to a fight in progress at Funz Trampoline Park, 1245 Dixwell Avenue. Upon arrival, officers say they encountered 40 to 60 teens that were involved in a dispute in front of the building.
According to police, many of those teens were engaging in a physical altercation so mutual aid from the New Haven Police Department was called in to stop the brawl.
Police added that they believe there were an additional 150 people inside of the trampoline park at the time and that they did not appear to be social distancing. A lot of people were also allegedly not wearing masks.
Captain Ronald Smith of Hamden Police says when officers arrived, the kids scattered away into the night.
Captain Ronald Smith: “Speaking with the owner, it appears that a lot of the teens that were there, were there just hanging around. A lot were hanging out in the parking lot and a lot were just standing in the vestibule and about 100 were inside.”
No arrests have been made, but Captain Smith says that could change as the investigation continues.
According to Hamden Mayor Curt Leng, the trampoline park now faces a $500 fine for violating social distancing guidelines.
The Quinnipiac Valley Health District will be notified of the COVID-19 violations.
