Woman arrested after Detroit toy giveaway leads to fights

DETROIT – A 39-year-old woman is accused of pulling a knife on another woman during a brawl at a Christmas toy giveaway in Detroit.

WXYZ-TV and WWJ-AM estimate that a few hundred people stood in line to wait on the city’s northwest side Saturday night, when the battle between the adults broke out.

No injuries were reported.

WXYZ-TV reports that the woman was arrested and the two children who were with her, were captured by family members of a police district.

Giveaway organizer John Cromer told the tv station that “the people are already under a lot of stress and tension in this time of the year” and “all it takes is for some people to step on someone’s shoes or bump into someone the wrong way and then a fight arises.”
