ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  We have an update on a downtown Albany brawl that led to several arrests Saturday evening.

Albany Police officers broke up multiple fights on 100 North Front Street involving juveniles. Five juveniles were taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct.

They include three 16-year olds, one 15-year old, and one 13-year old. EMS treated Quinnika Barkley after she fell and hit her head on the ground while running from the fight.

We spoke to one witness who says teens have no reason to be this unruly.

"People need to instill in their children it does take a village to raise a child and why do parents let children do stuff like that?" Lisa Thomas said. "Parents shouldn't be afraid to discipline their kids because they're the adults and we're the children."

All five juveniles were released to the custody of family members. Police are still investigating how the fights broke out.
