Campbell fight club style brawl caught on camera

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL, Ohio - Campbell Police say a fight club style brawl was caught on camera, and the video has led to a criminal investigation.

It's a disturbing and violent craze that is surfacing all over the internet.

But in this case, what may be an alleged fight club or organized street fight, happened on Monday, September 9th, just after school let out in Campbell.

And it's not just the fight that has law enforcement outraged, it's those who gathered to watch.

Campbell's Interim Police Chief, Sergeant Drew Rauzan sat down with 21 News Reporter Michelle Nicks, "I think a reasonable person can conclude that the adults are not only acquiescing to it, they are actively promoting a street fight to settle something and that's absolutely unacceptable behavior in the City of Campbell. So we're personally going to come down on everyone, and I personally am going to come down on the adults involved."

Two young people duked it out on 10th Street and Porter, as a crowd, that's believed to include parents, appeared to cheer, and encourage the violence.

Officers suspect some involved are as young as 10 or 12-years-old, and they say what was caught on camera is now part of a criminal investigation.

Detective Kevin Sferra with the Campbell Police Department says, "It's pretty hard to dispute when you're on video that you were involved or not involved."

Campbell Police, including the school resource officer say, along with the adults, the young people will be taught a lesson in crime and justice.

"Juveniles are looking at riot and assault charges, and possibly other crimes," Detective Sferra said.

The adults could face serious charges including, engaging in a riot, aggravated riot, inciting violence and disorderly conduct.

Police did receive a 911 call about the fight, but when officers arrived everyone dispersed, and claimed nothing happened. But the video doesn't lie.

"It clearly will identify each and every persons role in the incident," according to Detective Sferra.

Campbell's Interim Police Chief, Sergeant Rauzan says, it's a stain on the community, and violence that won't be tolerated.

"If you have information that could help us, call us at the Campbell Police Department," the number is: (330) 755-1411.
