A fight broke out at Round 1 in Northwoods Mall, the second since the entertainment center opened on November 18.

The center currently occupies the location of the old Macy’s and contains about 200 electronic games along with a bowling alley.

The Journal Star reports about four or five males fought inside Round 1 near the center’s entrance around 3:20 p.m. Security video captured most of the incident.

Mall security told police that someone had been hit in the head with a bottle inside Round 1, but left the area.

No suspects were located when police arrived. Mall security was able to recover a bloodied t-shirt and a couple cell phones, according to police.

The Journal Star reports police have not identified the owners of the cell phones.

At a previous news conference, Peoria Police Chief Jerry Mitchell said his team would have a heavy presence at the mall over the weekend, in part because of the increased shopping.
