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.
