Saugus Police Respond to “Disgusting” Brawl at Kowloon Restaurant Thanksgiving Eve

SAUGUS — Saugus police are investigating a large brawl in Kowloon that forced a popular restaurant to close earlier than expected Wednesday night.

Investigators confirmed to WBZ-TV on Friday that they were called to Kowloon about 10:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Eve to a “fight in progress.”

Video obtained by WBZ showed several men and women fighting at the bar. At one point a woman smashed a bottle over someone’s head.

Six officers who were working the restaurant’s detail went in and were able to “defuse the altercation,” police said.

No arrests were made, but several youths were detained and questioned by authorities.

“Charges are likely to come as one person used a glass bottle in the fight, which is a felony,” police said in a statement.

Kowloon managers closed restaurants and bars early after the fighting. There was no mention of the fight on their Facebook page, which included a post from Wednesday night that read, “We are so thankful for the hundreds of customers waiting outside to join us for our pre-Thanksgiving meal. Thank you!”


“The Kowloon is a family-friendly restaurant, and unfortunately a few unruly patrons ruined a good evening for many. This kind of disturbance on Thanksgiving Eve is unacceptable and disgusting,” Saugus Police Chief Michael Ricciardelli said in a statement Friday.

Investigators are still talking to witnesses. Anyone with information about the altercation is asked to call Saugus police at 781-941-1199.
