Falls police made two arrests after a pair of fights on Wednesday night.
The trouble started out in LaSalle when patrol and Roving Anti-Crime Unit officers responded to a report of "a large fight." The officers said when they reached Stephenson Avenue, at around 6:08 p.m., they saw several male suspects "fleeing in several directions from the area."
A 19-year-old man told the officers that he had been "jumped" by several men after agreeing to fight one of them at Stephenson Park. The victim said the fight had originally been planned for Gluck Park.
The teen told police he was "getting the best" of the man he was fighting, when two other men jumped into the brawl. The victim said he still "getting the best" of the three suspects, when other male suspects began attacking him.
After falling to the ground, when he tripped over a curb, the victim said the group attacking him began "kicking and stomping him in the head." Police said the victim was "disoriented, bleeding from his ear and complaining of head pain and nausea" when they found him.
He was treated at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for a fractured jaw.
Police said they detained three suspects who they believed were involved in the attack and brought them back to be identified by witnesses. One of the suspects was charged.
Rakem T.A. Coldallah, 20, 459 Ninth St., Apt. 1, faces a single count of third-degree assault.
Just over two hours later, Traffic Division and patrol officers responded to the 2000 block of Niagara Street. A traffic officer reported that he had encountered two women, in the street, yelling at each other.
The officer said he then saw one of the women begin punching the other woman in the face.
Iesha Monea Spencer, 28, 1601 Niagara Ave., was taken into custody. Police said Spencer told them, "That crackhead slapped my niece. She deserved what she got."
Spencer was charged with disorderly conduct.
