    TULSA, Okla. - The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office is investigating Tuesday after a video began circulating on social media showing a fight at the Tulsa State Fair.

    Deputies say the fight shown in the video happened Sunday around 9:30 p.m. on the midway and sent a 12-year-old boy to the hospital.

    The video was all caught on Snapchat and later shared to Facebook.

    The boy says he was attacked from behind by several older teens and knocked unconscious during the brawl. He went on to spend the night in the hospital.

    Deputies arrived to the scene about 30-45 seconds into the fight. They say the videos stopped as they arrived because the group scattered, trying not to be witnesses.

    Deputies told FOX23 they are certain they will be able to identify some, if not all, of the attackers.

    The victim says he had two cell phones and $50 stolen from him during the fight. If those items were stolen, deputies say this would be considered a strong armed robbery case.

    Deputies say kids fighting was the biggest problem they saw at the 2019 Tulsa State Fair.

    Out of 15 arrests they made, 13 of them were children -- a number that will rise if arrests are made in this case.
