KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Police say two people were cut with a box cutter at Bronson Park in Kalamazoo.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety said the incident happened around 12 a.m. Friday. It started when people at a camp in downtown’s Bronson Park began arguing and fighting. It’s unknown if all of those involved are protesters.

Two people were cut with a box cutter. Both received non-life-threatening injuries — one was treated on scene and other was taken to the hospital, police said.
