Thirty men crashed a Euclid Avenue house party early Sunday morning and became violent and destructive when they were told to leave, one of the homes’ residents said. The 26-year-old resident said that at about 1:15 a.m., several SUVs and other cars pulled up to his residence, and about 30 men exited the vehicles. As they approached the house, some guests confronted them to ask who they knew at the party, but they apparently did not know anyone. Even though they were told to go away, the men went into the party anyway. A few minutes later an altercation ensued, and as the men were leaving, they threw large rocks at the house, breaking the kitchen window. One man picked up a grill and smashed another back window at the house before fleeing. The residence and partygoers did not record the vehicles’ license plate numbers.
