ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are advising parents to keep their teenagers from loitering in downtown St. Louis after two dozen people, mostly juveniles, were arrested over the weekend.
Twenty juveniles and four adults are facing charges after police received complaints Saturday night that large groups of young people were blocking traffic and sidewalks in the area around Broadway and Market.

Eleven St. Charles West High School students are suspended for their involvement in a brawl Friday that began on Twitter. Superintendent Jeff Marion says some male students exchanged words with some male students from the Ferguson-Florissant School District using the social networking site.
Two St. Charles students helped orchestrate the brawl, and let four teens who were not students in the district into the building just as classes were dismissing for the day. Six teens were arrested after the fight. Of the 11 suspended Monday, six were female; all the students were ages 15 to 17.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports none of the four adults and two juveniles were associated with St. Charles West High School, where the melee occurred.
Police say the mob ran into the school about 2:30 p.m. Friday as classes were ending for the day. Witnesses said the group began fighting in the lobby, but it's not clear if they were targeting a St. Charles West student. Two school district employees were hurting trying to break up the fight. One juvenile, whose identity wasn't immediately clear, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said no weapons were involved. All six suspects were detained.
