WALNUT CREEK (CBS SF) — Two men were arrested in Walnut Creek early Sunday morning after a chaotic night with multiple fights around local bars, police said.
The two arrests were in separate incidents, but were within an hour of one another and only several blocks apart.
As the VICE Lounge at 1251 Arroyo Way was closing for the night, police received multiple calls reporting a fight involving around 30 people outside the club, including reports of a stabbing.
When police arrived shortly before 2 a.m. they found a chaotic scene on Arroyo Way between Broadway and Civic Drive with the streets full of people, including many who were just leaving the closing bar.
Police contacted 21-year-old Steven Enriquez-Wyatt of Bay Point there, and found him with multiple lacerations on his arms. Police said witnesses told them that Enriquez-Wyatt had assaulted a woman during the fight.
Officers said they then spoke to a victim who said she wanted
Enriquez-Wyatt arrested for assault. Officers said they determined that he was injured when his arm went through a window during the fight.
Enriquez-Wyatt was transported to a local hospital for treatment before being booked into Contra Costa County Jail for suspicion of battery and fighting in public. He is being held on $3,000 bail.
Police said they also interviewed another victim in a local emergency room with multiple lacerations.
Others fled the scene when the police arrived, and police said many of the people who remained in the area were uncooperative.
Around an hour earlier, at 12:43 a.m. Walnut Creek police officers on foot patrol found a man bleeding from the head in front of 1515 Lounge at 1515 N. Main St.
The man told officers that he had been hit in the face with a
glass during a fight inside the bar.
The officers found the man the victim described, 26-year-old
Arryan Moradkhani of Danville nearby and arrested him on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
The victim was treated by paramedics for lacerations on his face. Moradkhani was booked into Contra Costa County Jail in Martinez and is being held on $30,000 bail.
