A night to fight cancer
ended with a fight of a different kind.

Hundreds of people gathered at a Relay For Life event at South Aiken High

Investigators in Aiken say a rowdy group of about 15 people assaulted 2 women.

It happened around 10 last night.

Officers say someone punched an 18-year-old woman in the face. She was later
taken to the hospital but is now ok.

Around 20 minutes later, at the luminary ceremony, another group became rowdy
and boisterous, and started cursing at officers.

Investigators arrested 18-year-old Mikal Sturdivant and charged him with
disorderly conduct.

Police are still looking for another suspect. They haven't identified him yet
but believe he is 18 to 20 years old and could be from the New Ellen ton area.

They're not sure if both groups are connected.
