Police patrolling Old Town early Saturday came upon a fight that left a 31-year-old man with serious facial cuts and fractures, an official said.
The fist fight involved some men in the Farm and Art Market Square plaza between the 100 blocks of Mosley and Rock Island, police Sgt. Roger Runft said. The fight occurred around 1:35 a.m., when the entertainment area was crowded, he said.
Police found the 31-year-old victim semi-conscious. Another man, age 32, also had been injured, Runft said.
Officers arrested a 29-year-old man and booked him into jail on suspicion of felony battery.
Police don’t know what started the fight or even if the men knew each other, Runft said.
