Five arrested after street fight in Malton
FIVE people have been arrested after a street fight in a North Yorkshire market town on Bank Holiday Monday.
At around 12.50pm two vehicles pulled up in Milton Avenue, Malton, and a group of around 10 people got out carrying implements including a baseball bat and garden tools.
They approached a house and threatened the occupant before some of the group began fighting with three people in the street.
Three local men sustained minor injuries in what police called a “violent disturbance.”
A 22-year-old woman and two men aged 18 and 19 were arrested at the time and have since been bailed. A 21-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man were arrested today, August 27, and are now being questioned.
Now officers are appealing for anyone who saw anything or who has any information and has not yet spoken to the police to contact them.
PC Tim Welford said: “This was a frightening incident and caused a lot of concern among the local community at the time. We would like to reassure residents that we believe the incident was an isolated one and that the wider community were not at risk.”
He added: “For added reassurance and to assist the investigation, the mobile police office will be situated in Milton Avenue for three days and will be staffed by officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team. Members of the public can drop by and discuss any concerns they have or to pass on any information.”
Contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option two and ask for PC Tim Welford or email email@example.com or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
