Two men were arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after ‘utterly appalling’ scenes in Hitchin town centre.
A 42-year-old man from the town was arrested for a public order offence outside Osinsky’s on Market Place just after 1.30am following reports of a man acting in a threatening manner towards another person.
Between 2.30am and 3.10am a 19-year-old man was punched in the face, with a 20-year-old man from Shefford later arrested.
Both men who were arrested were given a police caution.
In a separate incident, police were called to Brand Street after reports of another fight involving four men just after 1am.
