Chicago police say two women were attacked with a broken bottle during a fight among a large group of well-dressed people in Streeterville on Sunday evening.

A Snapchat video showed a couple dozen people gathered in the 200 block of East Ontario as police tried to disperse the group around 8:50 p.m. Some people in the group are decked out in formal wear. Other Snaps from the area were sent from a wedding ceremony where some people appeared to be wearing outfits similar to those seen in the crowd. One Snap showed police officers in the reception hall.

Police said a “known offender” attacked two women in the group with a glass bottle. A 24-year-old suffered small cuts to her arm and head. A 27-year-old received a cut on her left arm. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.
