Lethbridge police continue to investigate a report of a fight involving a group of people Friday night in the area of Galt Gardens and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
On May 15 at 8:07 p.m. police responded to a report of a disturbance along the 300 block of 5 Street South. The caller indicated a group of people were fighting in the street on the southwest side of Galt Gardens. At 8:09 p.m. police arrived on scene but the disturbance had broken up prior to police attendance and the parties involved had scattered throughout the park and down the streets.
After speaking with the complainant an officer canvassed the area in an effort to locate anyone who had been involved in the altercation or witnessed what happened. Several groups of males were located. The first two groups indicated they had not been involved in the altercation, and one male from the third group alleged he was in a fight but did not want to get involved in the investigation. No other witnesses, victims or persons of interest were located or pointed out at the time.
Later in the evening a video posted on social media, recorded after the altercation, alleged a black truck was associated to two males involved in the fight. The investigation is ongoing to speak to the owner of the vehicle.
