Bloomington man suffers broken jaw, chipped tooth in Kirkwood Avenue fight

A fight broke out among five men on East Kirkwood Avenue on Friday night, resulting in a broken tooth and jaw for one 19-year-old.

The 19-year-old made a report to Bloomington Police Department, saying the assault had occurred around 2 a.m. on the corner of South Dunn Street and East Kirkwood Avenue, Sgt. Cody Forston said. 

The man and his friend were walking down the street when three men began arguing with the friend. Police said they don’t know what started the argument, but the four began to push and hit each other. The victim then tried to step in and stop the fight when he got punched in the face, Forston said.

The victim had a chipped tooth and a broken jaw from the punch, Forston said, and later went to IU Health Bloomington Hospital for treatment. 

Once released from the hospital, the victim said he noticed an unauthorized transaction on his debit card, which had gone missing during the night. He also told officers he thought it had been taken during the altercation. The case is now inactive, Forston said.
