Soccer teams engage in violence on the pitch

By Ana Breton

A man was taken to the U Hospital in fair condition after members of two local soccer teams allegedly fought March 9.

Officers from the U Police Department were dispatched to the Field House, where Eleazar Rodriguez, president of a soccer league, said a fight had erupted between two teams.

Rodriguez told police that Mario Salcedo started fighting with Francisco Garcia Jr., a member of a rival team.

According to a police report, referees jumped in and stopped the fight.

When police arrived, Garcia Jr. and members of his team had fled the scene.

Salcedo was transported to the U Hospital.
