A 19-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Sunday morning after a fight outside a residence in the 1700 block of Kentucky.
Lawrence Police Sgt. Kirk Fultz said a fight occurred about 1 a.m. outside the house after a group interrupted a birthday party. Fultz said two men who were battered said someone showed a knife during the fight. The knife was not used, and the men sustained minor facial injuries.
When police arrived, two men fled the scene, and police picked up Dauda Sheriff a few blocks away. A victim positively identified him, and police arrested him for aggravated assault and interference with police duties.
