Police are investigating a potential fight club in Spruce Grove after reports that youth planned fights and posted the locations on social media. Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Enoch RCMP said the activity could lead to criminal charges.

"We're trying to get to the bottom of how many of these have happened, who's been involved, why have they been involved?"

Parents have posted their concerns on social media about young people being injured in the fights.

The Parkland School Division declined to do an interview and instead issued a statement. "We are aware of the social media activity recently referring to a 'fight-club' in Spruce Grove and Stony Plain. We can confirm these incidents involving community youth are not happening at school and not happening during school hours."

RCMP said youth caught in fight-club type activities — either as spectators or participants — could end up being charged with a criminal offence.

Possible charges include assault, assault causing bodily harm and causing a disturbance.

RCMP are monitoring social media, she said.

Mueller said this is the third spring she has heard of a "fight club" being organized in the area.
