Two arrested after Letchworth town centre fight

TWO people have been arrested after a fight broke out in a town centre in broad daylight in which a man suffered face and neck injuries.

A 31-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, both from Letchworth GC, have been arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident in Letchworth GC town centre last Tuesday, September 20.

Police were called at around 1.30pm to reports of an altercation involving two men and one woman, which is believed to have started near to the Garden House Hospice shop in Eastcheap.

The man and woman had a small child and a buggy with them at the time.

It is believed there was an exchange of words before a fight occurred outside The Colonade pub, in which a 26-year-old man suffered injuries to his face and neck.
