The Mankato Department of Public Safety is investigating an assault that may have been part of a brawl outside several downtown establishments Thursday night.

Mankato Department of Public Safety Commander Jeremy Clifton.

Commander Jeremy Clifton said the fight included three men, and one of them reported the incident to police. “I don’t know that he wasn’t completely involved,” he explained, “But he sustained the most injury, called us. The two suspects ran from the scene.”

They’re working to identify two men involved and Clifton said they are exploring, “Video of both some of the local bars and also the city’s hosted video to determine who the two other males were that fled from the scene.”

Clifton said the man who reported the assault was treated at the scene.
