WICKER PARK — A fight among a group of women broke out after Wicker Park Fest on Sunday and spilled into the Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues intersection.

Just over a minute long, the fight happened around 12 a.m., according to Officer Michael Carroll, a Chicago Police Department spokesman. The fest ended at 10 p.m. Saturday.

About a half-dozen women team up to attack two women in front of the Flat Iron building, 1579 N. Milwaukee Ave.

The video was published by YouTube user Drey GeteMe on Monday.

The fight started as an argument between two women, which resulted in a 25-year-old woman being struck in her face, Carroll said. Later, a group of women approached the victim, who had been cut in her head during the fight, and began striking her, Carroll said. 

The woman took herself to West Suburban Hospital, police said. She reported the battery at the Wentworth Police District station Monday. 

No arrests have been made, and Area North Detectives are investigating.
