IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Iowa City police are looking into multiple fighting incidents in the downtown area.

On Wednesday, June 17, police arrested a 15-year-old male in connection with a physical altercation with two females at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center.

He was later released to his mother.

Later that same night, police responded to a call near Clinton and Washington streets for reports of a fight in progress with multiple bystanders.

Police say when officers arrived, many ran away.

Another fight with more people broke out nearby shortly after, according to police.

Police say they used pepper spray to disperse the fight, which was effective.

One 16-year-old girl was arrested at the scene, and police say more charges are pending for others involved.
