According to a sergeant with the Boulder Police Department, one person was facing trespassing charges. The sergeant did not know what charges the second arrestee could face. The ages and genders of the arrested people were not available.

The sergeant said there was a large crowd at a house party in the 800 block of 17th Street that officers had a tough time dispersing. He confirmed no one was injured.
