1 juvenile arrested after large fight in Hampden, Baltimore police say

One juvenile was arrested after a large fight in Hampden on Monday afternoon, Baltimore police said.

Officers were called to the area of Falls Road and 41st Street around 3:20 p.m. for a juvenile disturbance, according to spokeswoman Nicole Monroe. She said bystanders had reported a large crowd of juveniles engaged in a physical altercation.

Police did not identify the person in custody because he is a minor.

A video circulated on social media Monday evening that was labeled as the arrest, with commenters saying an officer was overly aggressive with the suspect. Asked about the video, police spokesman Matt Jablow said: “Initially, it appears the officers used an appropriate amount of force. We will, however, conduct a full review of the incident, which will include obtaining the officers' body worn camera video.”

This story will be updated.
