RIVERDALE, Utah -- At least 20 people were arrested in a street brawl in Riverdale early Monday morning.

Riverdale police got a call of a large fight around 3 a.m. When officers arrived they found 15-20 people in brawl using a variety of weapons.

Some of the weapons included a knife, baseball bats, a cane, crutches and a hammer, said Lt. Scott Brenkman.

Police were initially called to a Target parking lot but learned the fight began at a party that was being thrown across the street at a residence in a mobile home park.

“An individual felt threatened, called friends, they met here and that's when the fight started,” Brenkman said.

Four people suffered non-life-threatening injuries, but no one was taken to the hospital, police said.

"Non-life-threatening injuries consisted of a stab wound and one to the back of the head caused by some sort of blunt object," Brenkman said.

No officers were injured but it took a few agencies to break up the brawl.
