Indiana State Police Break Up Knife Fight At Fair
Indianapolis, IN – Two women were cut after a woman broke out a knife during a fight at the Indiana State Fair on Tuesday night. Nearby troopers were able to tackle the women involved and get them under control without further injury (video below.)
The incident occurred in the Midway area when a group of women got into an altercation, according to Fox 59.
Keionyae Gray, 24, pulled a box cutter out and cut two other females.
“It was an isolated incident targeted at specific people,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Stephen Wheeles. “A knife was used and it caused injury to other people. She began flailing it around and actually cut two of the other people that were in the altercation with her.”
While all of the women were initially detained, Gray was the only one arrested. She was booked on a preliminary charge of aggravated battery.
The Indiana State Fair would like to let everybody know that the fair is safe, and there are Troopers hiding around every corner to take down miscreants.
They released a statement which said:
The Indiana State Fair is committed to providing a safe and fun experience for all who attend the fair.
