THE BRONX - A boxing watch party turned violent in Belmont Sunday, leaving four men behind bars and an Applebee's worker with 200 stitches.

Authorities say they are still searching for two suspects, but the four others, including 16-year-old Messiah Runcie, have been charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
