Eight injured and seven arrested after early morning brawl

Seven police officers and a member of the public were injured on Friday during a fight in Ocean Village that resulted in seven military personnel arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

The incident happened just before 4am, after the RGP Control Room received a report of a large group of males fighting outside the Ocean Village Gym.

Kyle Connell, 20, Anthony Houghton, 36, Graham Tait, 42, Cameron Bull, 23, Connor Holborn, 24, Sandy Dove, 36, and Samuel Bates, 26, were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

During the incident, seven RGP officers and one member of the public were injured, resulting in some of the men being further arrested.

The Response Team officers were required to use captor spray, baton tactics and unarmed defence tactics.

The Royal Gibraltar Police officers were also assisted by officers from the Gibraltar Defence Police.

The seven men were bailed from New Mole House with conditions pending their court appearance on Tuesday morning.
