Fighting which began Wednesday night and carried over to Thursday night have led to arrests and continued investigation by the Roanoke Rapids Police Department.

Chief Chuck Hasty said the reasoning behind the fights is unclear. There were no serious injuries.
Police first responded to the area of West Tenth and Cedar streets Wednesday around 7 p.m. Hasty said in a statement officers responded after receiving a call about a large group of people fighting.
Officers from A and D squads spoke with several people and obtained information on possible suspects. Juvenile petitions will be obtained.
On Thursday around 6 p.m., officers responded to the area of West Tenth and Vance streets to another call of a large group of people fighting, Hasty said in the statement.
Three people were arrested — David Wayne Edwards Jr., 19; Dallas Wayne Walton, 18; and Tyler Ray Garner, 16. All are from Roanoke Rapids. All three were charged with assault on a female which, according to the warrants, from them reportedly pushing a victim while she was on her bike.
