Seven arrested after large fight in Teaneck park

TEANECK — Police arrested six adults and one juvenile after a massive fight in Teaneck’s Votee Park on Thursday night. The large fight involved a throng of people and an array of weapons, including baseball bats, tree branches and aluminum pipes. More than 30 people were detained in the incident, police said. One person was injured in the melee and had to be taken by ambulance to Holy Name Hospital for a large gash to his head, said Teaneck Det. Lt. Andrew McGurr. The six adults arrested are: Alexander Cordova, of Hackensack, Devaunte Locadia, of Teaneck, Rory Freckleton, of Teaneck, Davane Connell of Hackensack, Christopher Tawadros, of Teaneck, and Arie McCray of Fair Lawn. They all were arrested on rioting and weapons charges, police said. The name of the juvenile was not released because of their age. Police were called to the park around 11 p.m. by several frantic bystanders who described a big fight by the basketball court involving bats, said McGurr. “The details of the fight are still being sorted out,” said McGurr. Several hours later, around 1 a.m., a vehicle was boxed in at Cedar Lane and its back windshield was smashed in with a bat. The occupants of the car were not injured, said McGurr. “We believe this was connected to the original incident at the park,” he said. Three adults — Vernon Lincoln, Tyree Bryant and Dejon Harrison, all of Englewood — and two juveniles were arrested in the window smashing. All five were released on summonses.
