Police say officers were pelted with rocks and bottles when they tried to stop the fights. The officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

Rochester Police Capt. Naser Zenelovic says one officer suffered minor injuries and a 16-year-old’s nose was broken. Four adults and four juveniles were arrested.
