ST. CLOUD,, Minn. (KNSI) A large fight at the Press Bar in downtown St. Cloud ended with several injuries and two arrests.

Police were called around 1 am Sunday on a report that up to 30 people were throwing glasses, beer bottles and tables.

Officers arrested 22 year-old Ricky Cobb of Brooklyn Park after he allegedly cut a bar employee on the arm with a beer bottle while that employee was trying to break up the fight. Police also arrested 30 year-old Ashley Hammond of St. Cloud.

Cobb could face charges of second-degree assault and disorderly conduct. Hammond could be charged with obstructing the legal process.

One person may have suffered a broken nose during the fight and the employee who was cut was expected to receive stitches.

Staff closed down the upstairs area of the bar following the fight.
