Mass brawl knife attack

Mass brawl knife attack

A man suffered knife wounds following a mass brawl in Newquay town centre which spilled out into a residential area in the early hours of Sunday.
Two men were taken to hospital after receiving serious injuries to their face and head following several people being involved in a fight on Crantock Street at around 5.30am. Police attended the scene and a man was arrested on suspicion of GBH. He has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Police taped off the area and conducted a search to try to find the weapon, which is believed may have been a Stanley knife.
A police spokesman said: “Police are investigating an incident of disorder and an assault which occurred on Crantock Street in Newquay between 5am and 6:30am on Sunday.
 “The incident involved  several people and resulted in two males receiving serious injuries to their face and head,  one of whom was attacked with a knife. Both males had to go to hospital as a result of their injuries. A male was arrested and has been released on Police bail  pending further enquiries.”
Residents were woken by the commotion but did not look out to see what was happening as it is normal for them that anti-social behaviour occurs along Crantock Street during a busy night.
Amy Littler said: “We went on a night out and came back with friends. Then one of my mates left and came back saying there was a fight going on. I just thought it was a typical fight in Newquay and then I heard somebody had got stabbed.”
Another resident said: “I heard shouting and screaming but I did not get up because it is a standard Saturday night in Crantock Street. Anti-social behaviour happens all the time. When I woke I saw they had taped off the road and the police were here but they were not saying what had happened.”
A resident added: “I heard lots of noise but it was not unlike most busy weekends. When I took the dog out for a walk at 6.45am the police were at either end of the street and there was an ambulance opposite.”
Newquay Police are seeking the public’s assistance with the incident  and any witnesses to this assault are asked to contact 101 quoting crime reference number CR/073313/1.
