Four arrested following affray in Cheltenham

One man and three teenage boys are in police custody in connection with an incident in Cheltenham Sunday afternoon (March 7).

Police were called to St Paul's Road shortly after 4.30pm when a member of the public reported seeing a group of men attacking one another.

Four males were arrested on suspicion of affray.

Those arrested include a 15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man. They are all from Cheltenham.

They will all be interviewed today as officers conduct further enquiries and reassurance patrols in the area.

Detective Inspector Angela Middlewood said: "This appears to be an incident involving two specific groups of males and we do not believe that there is a risk to the wider community.

"We would like to thank members of the public for their co-operation whilst the incident was ongoing and reassure them that we are taking all possible action to keep them safe."
