Law enforcement reinforcements rushed to the mall to assist Paramus police amid reports of a large-scale incident shortly before 8 p.m. March 11.
Raw video shows several people jumping into what began as a brawl between two women.
Some in the area apparently panicked amid the shouting and screaming, perhaps believing something worse was happening. Reports of a gun being pulled were never confirmed.
Police from neighboring towns and the Bergen County Sheriff's Office joined their Paramus colleagues at the scene.
Paramus police thanked them for their assistance before quickly declaring the situation under control and releasing them.
