San Benito Police Chief Martin Morales

San Benito police are still sorting out the details following a Christmas parade brawl that was caught on tape.

Police Chief Martin Morales told Action 4 News that an 18-year-old man and 16-year old girl who knew each other got into a disagreement.

The verbal fight turned physical and suddenly six to eight more people in all got involved.

Investigators say it's unclear if they jumped in to seperate those involved or to fight with them.

Two juvenile girls were detained but have since been released.

Morales says they have about six to eight people to interview in order to determine what led to the brawl.

Police say the 18-year-old man involved fled the scene before officers arrived.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the San Benito Police Department at (956) 361-3880.
