Police are investigating a riot in which students from Indiana University of Pennsylvania attacked each another with shovels, cinder blocks, baseball bats and a machete.

The incident was reported as "a large fight with weapons involved" at 2:18 a.m. Saturday near the Giant Eagle in the 600 block of Locust Street, said Indiana borough Patrolman Thomas Dessell. As police arrived, most of the people involved fled, Dessell said.

A preliminary investigation indicated two rival fraternities began the fight, Dessell said.

Several individuals were treated at the scene and released, Dessell said.

Borough police ask anyone with information related to this incident or those who may have seen any part of the fight to contact the department at 724-349-2121.
