A large police presence was spotted along Third Ave in Steveston last Friday.

Richmond RCMP is currently investigating a large fight that broke out in front of Steveston's Buck & Ear last week.

Police responded to reports of a fight at the bar on Third Avenue just before 1 a.m. last Friday, Dec. 3, according to Richmond RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dennis Hwang.

Multiple officers arrived at the scene to "break up the altercation and tend to anyone injured," said Hwang.

He added it was a "large fight with multiple people" with "some possibly armed with knives." 

A video from Richmond resident Ron Dee shows multiple police vehicles parked along Third Avenue as patrons of the club and pedestrians looked on.

"One person was observed with laceration on their hand but did not wish (for) medical assistance," said Hwang. 

He added that most of the people involved had consumed alcohol and some were cooperative with police. No knives were located. 

Police are currently investigating the matter. Just one month ago, at least two people were injured in another late-night fight outside the same bar.
