FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Two men are facing charges after a fight at a downtown Fargo bar, where one of the employees lost the tip of their finger.

Officers responded just before 2:00 a.m. Sunday to Fort Noks at 52 Broad North in Fargo. The police report says Fort Noks employees told Austin and Dylan Reitan to leave because it was bar close. Officers say there was a verbal argument that turned physical.

During the disturbance, police say one staff member, Victor Barbosa, had a portion of his finger bitten off. Barbosa was taken to a hospital by ambulance.

24-year old Dylan Reitan was arrested for aggravated assault and taken to the Cass County Jail, though Reitan denies the allegation of biting Barbosa.

The police report alleges 26-year old Austin Reitan kicked one man in the face and punched another in his head. Police say he will be referred to the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office for assault charges.

Austin Reitan claims he was choked during the incident; police are still investigating and working to identify other possible suspects.
