TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Two are arrested after a disturbance at a Tulsa apartment complex late Tuesday night.

At 9:52 p.m. Tulsa Police responded to a stabbing at the Melrose Apartments in the 6300 block of East 9th Street.

When officers arrived, they found numerous individuals in the complex's parking lot fighting with bats, knives and crow bars.

Additional Tulsa Police officers were dispatched to help what they said was a very large and combative crowd.

Police say apparently three families who had just moved into the complex were involved in a fight with other local residents.

Along with the altercations, someone set a trash dumpster on fire and Tulsa Fire had to be called in to extinguish the fire.

After sorting things out, Police arrested Dean Hambrick, 38, for trying to stab three residents with a knife.

Hambrick's brother, Blane Hambrick, 25, was also arrested after he assaulted another resident of the complex with a crowbar.

Both were booked into the Tulsa County jail on variety of assault and battery complaints.
