Police and medics called to Westmoreland for couples' scuffle
After a fracas broke out near Westmoreland's "13 Virtues Brewing" on October 31, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers, Westmoreland Fire Station 20's Engine Company, and two AMR ambulances were called to the location at 9:24 p.m.
Within five minutes, five police squad cars were also at the scene; but the fire engine, and one of the ambulances, soon departed.
Officers conferred with a man in front of the establishment, who was describing the assailants. Before long, a woman departed the remaining ambulance with a bandaged hand – and the ambulance departed without a patient.
"Although it was dispatched as one, this turned out to not be a stabbing," reported PPB Public Information Officer Sergeant Kevin Allen.
"It was a physical fight between two couples who know each other," Allen told THE BEE. "The report suggests that no one went to the hospital by ambulance; it appears there were some cuts and scrapes.
"No arrests have been made, but an officer continues to work the case," Allen said.
