Cruise ship passengers arrested after fight
Two cruise ship passengers were arrested yesterday in connection with a violent incident in Dockyard in the early hours of the morning that left a pair of island teenagers in hospital with serious injuries.
Police said a fight broke out between three passengers from the Norwegian Breakaway cruise ship and two local males after an alleged jewellery theft.
The two locals — aged 19 and 17 — were taken to hospital with what police described as serious head and facial injuries.
A police spokesman said:
“A 26-year-old female and 23-year-old male from the cruise ship have been arrested in connection with this matter.”
Police were not able to say what charges the pair may face.
Parts of the incident were captured in multiple videos that were circulating on social media by yesterday afternoon.
The police spokesman said: “That footage will play a role in the investigation.”
He added that anyone with information that could help the inquiry should contact police.
