The fights that erupted Monday evening at the Shoppes at Buckland Hills Mall in Manchester were among several brawls involving mostly youths reported at malls around the country.
A person in the mall captured the fights on video:
Manchester police say men ages 20 and 19, as well as boys ages 16, 15, and 14, and a 15-year-old girl are facing charges including trespassing, breach of peace, and interfering with an officer.
Police say what started as a disturbance involving eight to 10 teens escalated into a "chaotic situation" and several fights.
One officer was assaulted but did not require medical attention. There were no reports of weapons being used, and no evidence the fights were gang-related. null
