Arrests After Violence At Party On IOW
Police have questioned a number of people after lots of fights broke out on the Isle of Wight.
Officers were called to an address in Ryde on Friday night (Feb 22nd) following reports of a party.
Police escorted a large group away from the address and onto local buses. More fights broke out on the buses and more officers were drafted into Newport to resolve the situation.
Eight people were arrested, aged between 14 and 24. Three of the eight were arrested for assaulting police officers. The officers were not seriously injured and remained on duty.
Sergeant Michael Hughes from Newport Safer Neighbourhood Team said:
“This large scale disorder was the result of a party being advertised on social media. It got out of hand and police had to be called in.
“We then had to use significant resources to deal robustly with further issues in Newport.
“I’d like to reassure the public that we will also be deploying extra patrols this evening. We will not tolerate any repeat of this behaviour.”
Proposals to charge near beaches and at some parks were scrapped after a big backlash from local people.
