PENNSAUKEN TOWNSHIP, NJ (June 9, 2024)(CNBNews)--Several fights Saturday night among a large crowd of teenagers and young adults resulted in the early closure of the Township's annual Summer Kickoff Event.


Similar mob fights between teens and adults have occurred recently in Gloucester City and Gloucester Township. Camden County authorities have not said the disturbances were connected in any way. There have also been similar brawls at New Jersey shore towns. 


In a prepared statement, Pennsauken Police Chief James Olivio said,

On Saturday, June 8, 2024, the Township of Pennsauken hosted the annual Summer Kickoff event at the Soccer Complex. During the event, multiple large crowds started to form outside of the community members who were trying to enjoy this event. These crowds started to become unruly, which prompted the event to be shut down before the situation deteriorated further. Police Officers throughout Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester County, responded to provide mutual aid to assist Pennsauken Police Officers in the clearing out of the unruly crowds, said Olivo.

Six arrests were made, four adults and two juveniles. I would like to thank all of our brave men and women law enforcement officers who were at this event, and all of the law enforcement agencies for sending mutual aid. The Pennsauken Officers and mutual aid Officers worked together and did an excellent job in keeping the community safe.

This type of unruly behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated in Pennsauken Township. The following adults were arrested:

India Allen (19 years old) of Pennsauken Townhsip. Allen was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Failure to Disperse.

Yamilet Meina (18 years old) of Camden City. Meina was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Failure to Disperse.

Damien Green (20 years old) of Pennsauken Township. Green was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Failure to Disperse, and Resisting Arrest.

Derek Berry (18 years old) of Pennsauken Township. Berry was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Failure to Disperse.

On June 1, 2024, in Gloucester Township, hundreds of kids and young adults invaded Veterans Park where the annual Gloucester Township Day Event was being held. The Gloucester Township Police stated in a press release that while families were enjoying and awaiting the drone light show, officers working security at the event began to notice an influx of juveniles and young adults being dropped off at the event. Crowds of young people began congregating in large groups in the area of the basketball courts. This crowd of juveniles and young adults was estimated to be approximately 500 people. Several police officers were hurt trying to disburse the mob. 

On May 19, 2024, the Gloucester City police responded to a chaotic situation involving both adults and juveniles at the intersection of Broadway and Ridgeway Street.  The GCPD arrested several people involved in the altercation. To help control the situation, additional support from neighboring police departments was requested. According to a witness at the scene, one of the assisting departments was from Monroe Township, which is located 50 minutes away from Gloucester City. However, we have been unable to verify this information. And like Gloucester Township many of the combatants were wearing all black and face masks. We have been unable to confirm that information, too. Unlike authorities in other towns, Police Chief Brian Morrell and Captain Jason Flood have ignored CNBNew's repeated questions about this large fight.
