NYACK, N.Y. -- Six people are facing criminal charges after an early morning melee on Nyack's Main Street spilled into the road, blocking both vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

Davina Singh of Haverstraw and Anthony Morris of Spring Valley were arrested after the 4 a.m. fight on Saturday, according to police, who said that four others whose identifications were not released also were taken into custody.

No serious injuries were reported.

Orangetown officers responded to the scene after the fight was underway and a crowd had gathered, according to a statement from the department.

"Police officers attempted to separate the combative subjects who were blocking Main Street from vehicle traffic and (were) non-compliant to police officers' orders," the department said in a statement released later in the day.

Orangetown police called upon the South Nyack-Grand View, Piermont and Clarkstown police departments and the Rockland County Sheriff's Office to help disperse the crowd and aid in making the arrests , according to authorities.

Singh, 24, faces several charges, including misdemeanor counts of second-degree riot, fourth-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, and a disorderly conduct violation, according to authorities, who did not describe her suspected role in the incident.

Morris, whose alleged role in the fight also was not released, faces counts of second-degree riot, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, according to police.

Singh and Morris, 25, were both released after posting $100 bail, according to police.

The four others alleged to have engaged in the fight face one count each of disorderly conduct, according to police. All were arrested and later released without bail.

According to police, Singh, Morris and the four unnamed suspects are all to answer to their alleged crimes in Nyack Village Court at 5:30 p.m. on April 11.
