A fist-fighting brawl in the middle of San Vitores Road in Tumon early Sunday morning is under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Guam Police Department.

A witness, who declined to be identified, said the fight appeared to be among military service members. He did not know what started the brawl that involved at least a dozen individuals.

The witness told the Pacific News Center that he heard the commotion and immediately ran towards the street and began recording it on his cell phone. The video has gone viral on social media.

The brawl broke out at 2 AM in front of the Tumon Subway store and the Acanta Mall. Young men and women are seen exchanging blows.

It’s not known whether anyone suffered injuries serious enough to warrant hospitalization. Nor is it known whether any arrests have been made.

When police arrived on the scene most of those involved had already “scurried away,” said the witness.

Guam police spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao told PNC that a response to the incident is forthcoming.
