Surrey Mounties are trying to sort out what started a brawl in a yard in South Surrey on Sunday night.
Several people were arrested following the fracas, which happened shortly before 7 p.m. in the 2600-block of King George Boulevard.
Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said police are hearing "all kinds of different versions from people on the scene.
"A lot of stories we are getting from people at the scene are conflicting with one another."
He said he wasn't able to confirm if machetes were used in the fight. "We're not disclosing at this point if any weapons were recovered."
No one was seriously injured, he said. Two people were taken to hospital.
Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said a man involved in the fight ran back into the house and refused to come out. An emergency response team was called in and surrounded the place while police tried to talk him out. He eventually surrendered.
"The residence was held over night," Hedderson said, while police obtained a search warrant. No charges had been laid by press time.
Paquet said police have spoken with two of three "people of interest," all Surrey men "known to police," and roughly 10 witnesses.
