Las Vegas Metro police are investigating after a fight broke out between teenagers at two Centennial Hills restaurants.

Witnesses told FOX5 it all started after Arbor View High School beat Centennial Hills in Friday’s football game.

Dozens of high school students packed inside a Raising Cane’s in the 5600 block of Centennial Center Boulevard and threw punches as the rest of the group captured it on camera. The fight then spilled into the In-N-Out next door.

“It was a vicious attack,” said Jonathan Bertram, who works at In-N-Out. Bertram was injured in the attack.

“Something knocked me off my feet and I fell on the ground and I slid on the ground a little bit and that’s when they all started swarming and started kicking and punching me,” said Bertram. “A kid tried to kick me and he missed and the rubber of his she ripped off my skin.”

Bertram said employees stepped in after a girl was beaten by a large group.

Police said she was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The girl’s mother asked anyone with information on the incident to send her a message on Twitter.

“If anyone recognizes any man or female who was kicking and stomping on her, please DM her. Very important,” the post said.

The girl’s mother told FOX5 her daughter was released from the hospital, but she has a black eye, chipped tooth, pulled hair and bruises.

The family of another student from Arbor View High School said he had to get stitches above his eye. The family said he was trying to help a student who was badly beaten. The family said they plan to seek legal action.

Police are investigating what sparked the fight, but witnesses said the two schools are known rivals.

“They were just getting really upset with each other and wanted a reason to fight to be honest,” said Rachel Beltram, an In-N-Out employee.

Raising Canes and In-N-Out are working with police to resolve the incident.

The Clark County School District also released a statement Sunday afternoon:

"CCSD is aware of the incident that occurred Friday night involving some of our students. Although the incident took place off school property and after hours, administrators are cooperating with Metro, contacting parents and will be taking appropriate disciplinary action."
