Arrests after Front Street brawls
Two men were arrested, with a court appearance expected tomorrow, after police responded to a fight on Front Street at around 8pm on Thursday.
Also anticipated in Magistrates’ Court is a man arrested early this morning after a fight in The Dog House bar spilt out onto Front Street.
Both fights were widely shared on social media.
The first incident broke out between two local men, believed to be aged 25 and 31, near the junction with Burnaby Street, by the No. 1 car park.
Officers and EMTs found one man “visibly injured”, a police spokesman said, but both declined medical treatment.
As of this afternoon, both remained in police custody, the spokesman added.
The second incident, at 12.20am today, involved at least two people tussling in the bar, with the disturbance spreading out into the road.
Inquiries continue and witnesses, particularly persons with photos or video footage of the altercation, are asked to contact the main police telephone number at 295-0011.
