Hoboken police officers arrested a teen and two out-of-town men for their alleged involvement in a street fight which left one man unconscious Oct. 11, according to a press release from the department.
On Sunday, Oct. 11, at approximately 11:52 p.m. Hoboken police were dispatched to the intersection of Third and Washington streets on a report of a street fight.
Officer Enrico Gnassi approached an unconscious male who was being carried by three people.
