Four arrested after fight between two groups

Four people have been arrested after a fight between two groups of people in Limeside. 

Greater Manchester Police were called at around 5.25pm on Saturday (6 March) after receiving a report of two groups of people fighting on land off Hollins Road. 

An 18-year-old man and three 16-year-old boys were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder - one of whom was located after being traced by specialist officers from the Dog Unit.

All four remain in custody.

Another 16-year-old boy sustained a 'minor injury' that did not require hospital treatment.

Inspector Mark Lewis, of GMP's Oldham District, said: "Thanks to the swift response of our officers, we were able to attend the scene shortly after the report was made to police and arrest four people. 

"Thankfully, no-one was found to have sustained serious injuries as part of this incident.

"We will not tolerate this kind of lawless behaviour in our communities and I thank those members of the public who contacted us about this altercation."

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 9015 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
