Dallas (AP) - Two gangs wielding guns, knives, sticks, chains and matrial arts devices robbed at least 10 people during and after a concert by the Beastie Boys at Fair Park Coliseum, police say. The robberies were reported Saturday night, according to robbery investigator K.C. Edmonds. He said four people, including two juveniles, were arrested in an attack on two concertgoers.

Greg Roplfe and Trace Bell, both 18 of Dallas, told police they gave up trying to buy tickets for the concert and were walking near the Cotton Bowl when they were attacked by a gang of four youths.

In another incident, four Arlington high school students were attacked by a gang of about 10 youths who threatened them with knives.
