Durham chief says it's unlikely much will be made public about teen fistfight


DURHAM - Police Chief David Kurz told councilors and residents there is no new public information to release on a June 3 fistfight that left one teen hospitalized in intensive care.

The chief appeared before the City Council last night to discuss the investigation into the fistfight, but said it because it involved juveniles there is likely little information that will be made public. The fight was reportedly set up by teens from two different schools using social media. It happened at Milne Sanctuary at Mill Pond.

Kurz said he will make a public statement if the Strafford County Attorney's office declines to prosecute, but the information will likely be heavily redacted.

"I don’t want anyone in this community to think that anyone gets a break,” Kurz said. “We will arrest anyone who is committing a crime, period.”
