LAUDERHILL (CBS4) — Lauderhill Police are searching for twin brothers they believe are responsible for starting a disturbance at a mall in June.

Officers were called to the Lauderhill Mall June 25 after a large crowd of teenagers began fighting.

After investigating, police now want to locate twin brothers Michael and Matthew Russo.

Two arrests were made at the time of the fight and both were juveniles.

One person was injured during the brawl and treated at a hospital with minor injuries.

Police believe a posting on a social media website drew at least 200 teenagers to the Lauderhill Mall to participate in the fight.

In cellphone video obtained by CBS4 News, you can see a group of teens gathering near the mall entrance.

As the crowd pushed inside, someone used a large traffic cone to hit someone.

Inside the mall teens squared off to fight while a security officer walked by.

The video shows teens running and screaming through the mall.

Anyone with information should contact the Lauderhill Police Department at (954) 497-4700.
