The wave of violence broke out as nearly 20,000 people left Newark’s Prudential Center after Saturday’s Red Hot Chili Peppers show.

Three teenagers and two adults were targeted, including a 23-year-old Pennsylvania man, who suffered a fractured eye socket.

Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the suspects appeared to be a band of 10 or 15 “thugs.” No arrests have been made.

Prudential Center officials say they wish the victims a speedy recovery, and praised the work of the Newark Police Department DeMaio tells the newspaper 23 officers were assigned on Saturday, despite the city ordering a recent reduction.
