A call of a “disturbance” at a large gathering at a house in Coram Saturday night resulted in partygoers throwing objects and anti-police taunts at responding officers, Suffolk County police said.

According to a Suffolk County police spokeswoman, police were called to the house on Murray Lane at 10:02 p.m. on a report of a disturbance involving the large crowd gathered for the party.

“When police arrived attendees threw objects in the direction of the police but none of them [the officers] were hit and there were no injuries or damage to their vehicles,” the spokeswoman said.

She said information on what the disturbance involved was not immediately available.

“It was peacefully resolved and there were no arrests,” the spokeswoman added. She said objects thrown at police included “rocks and other objects.”

It took officers about three hours to disperse the crowd, and no arrests were made, News 12 Long Island reported.

“The officers did an absolutely wonderful job of de-escalating and ending that unruly party,” Police Commissioner Timothy Sini told News 12 in an interview.

The spokeswoman said she did not know how many people attended the party but she said it was a “large” group. She said the police that responded were Suffolk County police from its emergency services office and the Sixth Precinct.
