PROVO — A suspected gang member is in custody after officers found him with a large, curved knife at a gang fight in Provo, police said.

Officers got a call Thursday night that there was a fight at a house police know is gang affiliated, according to the police report filed in 4th District Court.

When police arrived, two individuals wearing gang-affiliated colors took off running, while one became belligerent with the officers.

A 20-year-old man who ran tossed his knife on the top of a building in the back yard before he was stopped by officers, police said.

They arrested the man for investigation into possession of a dangerous weapon and failure to stop at command, with gang enhancements.
