ENID, Okla. (AP) -- The manager of an Enid mall says security is adequate despite a fight involving about 30 teenagers at the mall.

Oakwood Mall Manager Brad Waken says Friday night's "scuffle" between two groups of teenagers is an isolated incident and was ended quickly by mall security.

Waken says security personnel may switch to more recognizable and formal uniforms to reassure the customers the mall is safe.

Police say two teens suffered minor injuries in the incident between a group of Hispanic teens and juveniles from a group home that holds teenagers in state custody.

Police say the Hispanic teenagers were apparently looking for another teen after an earlier fight.
