The fight broke out between a group of people just after 3:30 am in the parking lot of the bar according to a law enforcement source.

A video submitted to Cheektowaga Chronicle Saturday afternoon shows a woman yelling while two men scuffle. 

The videographer – who wishes to remain anonymous – was walking out of Ying’s as the bar was closing for the night.  He saw the fight and started recording.

“I caught it in mid-argument and I just seen pushing and shoving,” said the videographer.

“Probably about three people were physically involved and then six or seven others that were verbally yelling, if anything, making it worse.”

He tells Cheektowaga Chronicle that the Cheektowaga Police arrived shortly after the video ended. 

It was reported that one man was stabbed in the arm during the fight and was later transported to Erie County Medical Center by an AMR ambulance.

The combatant was not cooperative with the police while they were trying to develop a suspect.
