Two people were arrested in a Bluffton neighborhood Thursday following reports of a disturbance, according to Maj. Joseph Manning.

Bluffton police received two anonymous calls in the early afternoon about a large group fighting outside a home in the 100 block of Buck Island Road, Manning said. When officers arrived, they found about 15 people arguing, he said.

Officers dispersed the group and charged two men with public disorderly conduct, Manning said.

As police were finishing their investigation at another location, they received a third report that a vehicle had returned to Buck Island Road and its occupants were causing a disturbance. The vehicle was gone by the time officers arrived, Manning said. Police are continuing to search for the suspects.
