Two people were arrested and two others were cited early Sunday morning after a fight at a downtown Naperville bar, authorities said Monday.
The dispute occurred at 12:44 a.m. at Rizzo's, 6 W. Jefferson Ave., when a man grabbed a female by the throat on the restaurant/bar's dance floor and tried to choke her, Naperville police Sgt. Lou Cammiso said.
Two male friends intervened, "trying to stick up for the girl," Cammiso said, while a bar employee who tried to stop the fight was injured when the female hit him in the face with her stiletto style shoe.
Police arrested and charged Kenneth S. Davis, 21, of the 500 block of Donna Avenue in Aurora, and Jessica M. Manchur, 27, of the 600 block of Grove Drive in Elk Grove Village, with fighting under city ordinance. Authorities said Davis instigated the fight and Manchur struck the employee with her shoe.
The two others who intervened in the fight were cited under the city's fighting ordinance but were released at the scene.
One of them suffered facial lacerations and was transported to Edward Hospital for treatment.
