Three people were arrested following a fight that erupted Monday shortly after school was dismissed for the day in Wilkinsburg.

The fight was between a woman and a teenage girl but drew “a bunch of kids in the street ... disrupting and rowdy and inciting,” Wilkinsburg police Chief Ophelia “Cookie” Coleman said.

The woman and the girl — identified as being 34 and 15 years old — were arrested for fighting, police said. A second juvenile was charged for something that occurred during the fight, police said, not being more specific.

There were no injuries in the fight that erupted around 3 p.m. in the 700 block of Penn Avenue, officers said.

Police would not say what prompted the fight.
