Police say the two mothers began fighting and had to be separated three or four times. The fisticuffs left one woman with a bloody nose.
Only one mother was still there when officers arrived. She said she wasn’t interested in pursuing charges against her attacker.
As the release puts it, that left officers without “any info that could crack the case.”
