Six arrested after "violent disorder" outside university
WEAPONS were recovered following a violent disorder in High Wycombe this morning which left a man with a broken nose.
Police said they found the semi-conscious man in a car-park outside the Buckinghamshire New University’s Students’ Union in Lily’s Walk following a violent altercation shortly before 1.50am.
Suspects began to leave the scene as officers arrived, with several fleeing in vehicles, police said.
Police stopped a car and discovered weapons inside, leading to the arrest of the two men inside the vehicle – six men in total were arrested.
They are described as black, aged between 18-to-20 years old and were wearing casual clothes, officers said tonight.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the disorder including a woman who was seen near to the injured man, who was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He has since been released.
Det Sgt Sally Spencer said: “This incident has happened in the car park near to the Students’ Union so a lot of people would have seen what happened and would know who was involved.
“I am appealing for anyone who has any information about the incident to contact police.
“We would be interested in speaking to a girl who was standing near the injured man.
“She is described as being white, with long brown hair, aged around 18 to 20 years old, and was wearing dark clothing.
“We need to speak to anyone who has information or has recorded any of the incident on their phone.
“Although no one was seriously hurt, the offenders have armed themselves with weapons, some of which have been recovered or were found with the suspects arrested.”
Contact police on the 101 enquiry line with any information or call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
