A Biloxi police officer and mall security guard got into a scuffle with a group of people Sunday after asking the group to leave a store in Edgewater Mall.
A reporter on the scene said the police officer wasn't badly hurt, but the security guard had a bloody face.
Biloxi police officials said the group was inside Dillard’s and refused to leave when confronted by store employees.
Some people in the group attacked the officer and security guard when they tried to disperse the group, authorities said. After a short scuffle, the suspects ran from the store and took off down Hwy. 90 in a white van.

The van was eventually stopped near Rodenburg Ave. at the Southwind Apartments. Police tell us they are no longer searching for any suspects.
