Oh, Belmont. The colicky baby of area streets that keeps screaming for attention.
Multiple 911 callers reported a large fight in the street near the Belmont Red Line at 2:40 this morning. One caller reported “50 to 60” people-including members of Belmont’s prostitution buffet—fighting near Clarke’s diner at the intersection of Belmont and Wilton. A fire department ambulance crew that was called to the scene also radioed for police assistance to quell the action. No arrests.
• About two hours later, police returned to the intersection after officers were asked to assist with a battery in progress inside Clarke’s. No one wanted to press charges, so no report has been filed.
