Written by on December 16, 2019

A man and woman have been arrested after a huge three-one-one street fight left one with head injuries and a police officer injured.

Staffordshire Police say a 22-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man were detained in Bore Street, Lichfield, after the violence broke out at around 2am on Sunday, December 14.

The shocking video of the violence, which was captured by Taxi Dave, captured an argument moments before the group began trading blows with each other.

It was not known why the fight started but the clip showed a woman – who was with the group – pleading with some of the men to ‘get off him’.

Three of the men were filmed grabbing hold of another as they continued to hit him in the head.

The fight continued off camera but the footage showed Staffordshire Police officers racing to the scene.

A spokesman for the force said a police officer was assaulted shortly after.

They added: “Officers were called to a report of an assault on Bore Street in Lichfield at around 2.15am on December 14.

“Colleagues from West Midlands Ambulance Service also attended the scene. A man suffered head injuries.

“A 22-year-old woman of no fixed address was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly and assault police.

“A 28-year-old man from Rugeley was also arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

“They have both been bailed until January.

“Enquiries are on-going and anyone with information can call 101 quoting incident number 82 of 14 December.

2Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
