HURON TWP.

Officials are still trying to piece together the details of a bloody brawl that took place early Friday at the Nia Center at Kalahari Resort. Three telephone calls to 911 and two surveillance tapes shed little light on the incident in which four people were injured.

In the first call, released Monday by the Erie County Sheriff's office, a panicked woman reports that a fight is taking place outside the convention center. A second call from a Kalahari security guard says there are "probably about 200 people out here" and asks the dispatcher to send every available unit. The third caller says only that "it's getting pretty ... serious out here" before the dispatcher assures him help is on the way. All three calls were received within about a minute, Capt. Paul Sigsworth said. The sheriff's office obtained two surveillance tapes from Kalahari Resort. The first tape shows a large group of people congregating in the vestibule between the Nia Center and its outside doors, then moving outside.

Two men were stabbed and two others beaten during the fight, which took place after the birthday party of local rapper Mic-O.

None of the men suffered life-threatening injuries. Sigsworth said the incident remains under investigation, and no arrests have been made.
