Cameras capture parking garage brawl in Boston
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Cameras were rolling when more than a dozen people were involved in a brawl in a Boston parking garage.
The incident took place at the City Place Garage in the State Transportation Building on Charles Street in the Park Plaza area of Boston.
Witnesses said nearly 30 young men ganged up on at least two other men, who were left bloodied after being punched and knocked down repeatedly. Several women were also present.
State police responded to the scene at around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday. Police said they arrived two minutes after getting the calls, but the fight had broken up.
Police said two victims were identified and taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Police said they talked to one of the victims, but no arrests have been made.
There are numerous nightclubs in the area. People who work, live and go to school in the area said they are not surprised something like this happened.
“When clubs let out at 2 o’clock it can get pretty crazy. People fighting over cabs and being stupid,” said Ashley Ayres, a student.
“I’m just a little bit surprised it happened in the parking garage on not on the street because I’ve never heard of anything bad happening in the parking garage, but, I mean, people do crazy things when they’re drunk and I guess that’s what happens,” said Tyffany Shute, a student.
Police said they are also investigating the possibility of this being a hate crime.
