Late-night brawl draws Ithaca police to Moonshadow Tavern

January 1, 2014

The Moonshadow Tavern on the Ithaca Commons was the scene of a late-night bar brawl on Saturday night, say Ithaca police. IPD officers responded to the scene for reports of an assault that had occurred at the rear of the establishment.

Police officers arriving at Moonshadow at about 1:12am found about twenty people fighting near the rear door of the bar, which opens into an alleyway facing East Seneca Street. A female victim sustained what police called "a large laceration to the right side of her face.

Police ask that anyone with information regarding this incident, including photos or videos recorded during the fight itself, contact IPD at 607-272-3245 or 272-9973, or use the IPD Anonymous Tipline online at or by phone at 607-697-0333.
