Two Chicago police officers were injured Saturday afternoon while breaking up a fight near the Gold Coast on the Near North Side.

The officers were responding to a disturbance in the 100 block of West Division Street when they found multiple people fighting about 5:50 p.m., according to police.

One officer was struck in the face and declined medical attention at the scene, police said.

Another officer suffered scrapes and bruises to the face and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, police said.

Five people were taken into custody.

Police said two other people were also taken to the hospital. They were listed in good condition, officials said.

The owner of the Gold Coast Social restaurant and bar said the fight started inside the bar over a soccer game.

The establishment was closed for the rest of the night out of respect for the injured officers but will reopen on Monday, the owner said.
