Fight breaks out in Student Union


Lunchtime turned violent in the Student Union last Wednesday when two males got into a fist fight. 

Video of the fight shows two males fighting for roughly 30 seconds before bystanders broke the fight up. The video has over 58,000 views on the Barstool Buffalo Instagram account as of Wednesday afternoon. 

Deputy Chief of University Police Joshua Sticht said the victim is a UB student, but UPD is still trying to identify the suspect. The fight reportedly started over a disagreement when one of the participants was talking to the other’s girlfriend, according to Sticht. 

Sticht said the investigation is still pending, but the victim indicated that he would like to press criminal charges. Since the incident is still pending, Sticht cannot release any more information. 

 The victim was not seriously injured during the fight. 

This is a developing story.
