JOLIET, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Six young adults were arrested early Friday after allegedly fighting at the Louis Joliet Mall.

Maria C. Martinez, 18, of the 1600 block of East Washington Street in Joliet; Raymond Pizarro, 19, of the 4800 block of South Harding Avenue in Chicago; Juan L. Perez, 19, of the 24200 block of West Mill Creek Lane in Plainfield; Thaddeus A. Catrejon, 22, of the 4700 block of Peacock Lane in Plainfield; Julio C. Lopez, 19, of the 500 block of Grant Avenue in Joliet; and a 16-year-old girl were arrested on charges of mob action.

Martinez, Pizarro and Perez were also charged with aggravated battery and Castrejon was charged with resisting arrest.

Police said four teenage girls got into an argument at Panera Bread earlier in the evening and it continued when they saw each other again around 1:30 a.m.

"A fight broke out at the center of the mall and boyfriends got involved. When the melee began over 100 onlookers gathered around the six [combative] subjects," police said.

While trying to break up the fight, a security guard was elbowed in the face and Martinez allegedly kicked a police officer in the knee.

Five of the suspects were booked into the county jail while the juvenile was released to parental custody.
