The other incident involved a man who was injured in a fight with two or three others in a yard outside his residence in the 600 block of 2nd Street.

 According to a police report, a 17-year-old male told officers that his ex-girlfriend called and asked that he meet her at Fuqua Park on Saturday.

 He said when he got there, the girl’s brother jumped him and started kicking and hitting him.
