ROCHESTER, Minn. - Two alleged fighting incidents at the Olmsted County Fair are under investigation after one boy suffered injuries and another juvenile claimed to be jumped.

Rochester police said one incident occurred Tuesday when a juvenile victim said she was jumped by a group of people at the fair.

Deputies responded to the reported fight and arrested a juvenile female who was charged with fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

"The victim reported that she was in the Midway section of the Fair, when she was approached by the suspect. The victim and the suspect are known to each other. The victim reported to law enforcement that the suspect struck the victim on the side of the victim’s head and then pulled the victim to the ground. The victim stated that other juveniles helped pull her (the victim) to the ground.

"The suspect was located, in the Midway section of the Fair, and would not cooperate with law enforcement. The suspect was identified by the victim as the person that committed the assault. The suspect refused to fully identify herself when confronted by deputies and as a result of the uncooperative, belligerent behavior shown by the suspect, she was taken into custody," the sheriff's office said. 

A second alleged incident occurred at 10:19 p.m. Tuesday after a report of kids leaving the fair were involved in a fight in the parking lot of Walgreens.

Police said about 50 kids were there before scattering once police arrived.

A 12-year-old boy was pushed into a pole and likely suffered a broken wrist. No arrests were made.
