BERKELEY -- Police arrested four juveniles following a roving fight involving a "large crowd" outside Berkeley High School and in the downtown area Wednesday afternoon, spokeswoman Jenn Coats said.

"The fight started to break up as we first arrived on scene," Coats said. "The group then started moving around the downtown area."

Coats said there were no injuries, and she did not know if the arrested students were from Berkeley High. She said police remained on scene after the fighting stopped to make sure no new scuffles broke out.

She said police initially responded to the intersection of Bancroft Way and Milvia Street, after receiving several calls. After police dispersed the original crowd, groups of juveniles moved to several intersections around the downtown area and continued fighting. The downtown is about a block from the high school.

Coats did not have information on what charges the four arrested juveniles may face.
