• Police are investigating a fight that occurred on Sunday, Aug. 25, in the 0-100 block of Sugar Lane. They said two men, including a 40-year-old of Carol Stream, and a 55-year-old of Sugar Lane, Sugar Grove, told police they were outside an apartment when a third man, 31, of Sugar Grove, approached them and struck up a conversation with them. They invited the man into the apartment for drinks, they said. At some point, they alleged the third man stood up and punched the Carol Stream man in the face, causing his nose to bleed.
