At 3:14 p.m. Tuesday, South Lake Tahoe police responded to a report of an assault in the 1200 block of O’Malley Drive.

A 16-year-old South Tahoe High School student reportedly was riding in a vehicle with three other males when the car crossed the path of a second 16-year-old on foot.

The teenagers have had previous problems with each other, according to police.

The teen who was riding in the car got out and started a fistfight with the teen on foot, who received three staples in the back of the head as a result of injuries sustained during the scuffle, police said.

The aggressor was cited, released to his parents and suspended from school, according to police.

The fight is believed to be gang-related, police said.

— At about 4:35 p.m. Saturday, an 18-year-old bicyclist reportedly was struck by a Toyota Tundra driven by a 78-year-old Folsom man. The incident occurred in the 3800 block of Pioneer Trail.

The bicyclist, a South Lake Tahoe woman, failed to properly signal before turning left across traffic, according to police.

She received abrasions to her right elbow and was treated by paramedics at the scene before being released, police said.

The amount of damage to the Tundra, if any, was not immediately available.

Charges are not being pursued in the incident, police indicated.

— At 1:10 a.m. April 27, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy responded to MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa after a report of an assault with a deadly weapon.

As two men, one from Carson City and one from Dayton, left Club Blu, they allegedly exchanged words with a group of eight to 10 men in front of a nearby restroom, according to a deputy’s report.

The group of men then allegedly attacked the pair, who may have been hit over the heads with bottles during the melee, the report said.

The Carson City man received several cuts around his head, including a 31Ú2-inch cut to the right side of his neck, the report said.

The man was taken to Barton Memorial Hospital, where he received eight stitches, the report indicated.
