GLOUCESTER TWP. NJ June 19 2012— What started as a simple fight Sunday afternoon escalated to what police called a riot Sunday afternoon in the township’s Erial section.
Multiple 911 calls brought officers to the area of Ray Smith Road just before 4 p.m. Sunday. There they found a man that had been knocked to the ground and kicked in the head as he lay unconscious.
He was identified by police as 21-year-old Manndell Mobley of Pop Moylan Boulevard in Woodbury.
A female at the scene was also beaten to the point of unconsciousness, police said.
It was later determined that the female victim had been caught off guard and assaulted by a juvenile female and two other adult females. She was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Once officers arrived, the group engaged in the assault fled on foot. As a result of an investigation, six people were arrested. Both Quason Mack, 19, of Berkshire Road in Sicklerville and Dimieari Halliday, 25, of St. Mortiz Drive in Erial were charged with aggravated assault and creating a riot.
Police said they witnessed both Mack and Halliday assaulting Mobley.
They are being held on $30,000 bail in Camden County Jail.
As officers tried to get the situation under control, Mobley regained consciousness and tried to attack those who had attacked him. Police said he also tried to assault a police supervisor and failed to follow commands from officers.
Mobley was subsequently arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and resisting arrest. He is free on $500 bail.
Additional charges of simple assault and creating a riot were issued against two Sicklerville residents – Indya Seales, 20, of Hampton Gate Drive and Kyra Valentine, 20, of Langdon Court. They were processed and released.
Police also cited a female juvenile on the same charges.
