FORT COLLINS - Police are asking people who attended the Colorado State University party-turned-riot Saturday to submit photos and video to investigators.

They hope this information will help them identify who was responsible for the disturbance. No arrests had been made as of Friday afternoon. 

Fort Collins Police broke up several large parties Saturday evening near the intersection of Westbridge and Prospect roads - an area about a mile from the CSU campus. Police first responded to several noise complaints shortly before 9 p.m. and worked with the party hosts - who had registered the gathering at CSU - to shut it down.

They were called back later that evening when neighbors complained at large crowds of approximately 300 people gathered in the street. Police tried to disperse the partygoers, but then the crowd became unruly and aggressive, breaking bottles, climbing on streetlight poles, cars and trees, and throwing bottles at police.

Police then had to use pepper ball, pepper spray and tear gas to disperse the crowd. Three people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Anyone with information about the disturbance is asked to call police at 970-221-6555 or Crimestoppers at 970-221-6868, where you will remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward.
