2 injured after fight erupts at NJ birthday party

Sunday, December 04, 2011

Authorities say a teenage boy was hospitalized and a woman was injured when a large brawl broke out during a Sweet 16 birthday party held at a hall in central New Jersey.

It's not clear what sparked the brawl, which occurred around 10:25 p.m. Saturday in a second-floor banquet hall at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Ocean Township.

Police in the Monmouth County community say the injured 17-year-old Asbury Park boy suffered facial injuries and was taken to a hospital. The woman - identified only as a VFW staffer - was assaulted during the brawl, but declined medical treatment.

No charges have been filed in connection with the brawl, but authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
