Reports of bat and metal bar wielded in Penryn fracas

First published in News

Police were called to a fight in Penryn’s main street on Friday evening allegedly involving a baseball bat and what “looked like a crow bar.”

Officers received a call at around 7.45pm to report three or four men fighting in Higher Market Street, near the Seven Stars pub on The Terrace.

Rob Brinkhof, the pub landlord, said: “There was a couple of youngsters fighting each other, I’ve never seen them before.

“They had a baseball bat and a crow bar, it looked like a crow bar. The police came down about half an hour later.”

A police spokesperson said: “There was a group of men fighting on the main street. A male was reported with a baseball bat. We searched but couldn’t find them anywhere. The log’s been closed, unless something comes up from CCTV.

“A group of lads was hanging around, but they dispersed.”

"The police came down about half an hour later".

Not the rapid response unit then.

That probably was the rapid response unit, otherwise they'd have been there a week later.
