NEW YORK — Police say a crowd erupted as they were trying to break up a fight outside a New York City funeral home.

The New York Police Department says officers were called at around 7:30 p.m. Monday about two women fighting for unknown reasons.

WNBC says people attending a wake at the East Harlem funeral home poured onto the sidewalk and jumped into the fray.

A witness, Angel Gutierrez (AHN'-hel goo-tee-AYR'-ehz), says people in the crowd of several dozen started screaming and pushing officers after an officer used a stun gun on a man during an arrest.

Police say two people were arrested and charges are pending. Two officers have been treated for bite marks.
