A group of Maltese youths involved in a street fight in Ħamrun last night ignored restraining efforts by local police officers, forcing them to call in officers from the Rapid Intervention Unit.
The fight took place at around 11pm at Pjazza San Pawl, where the Ħamrun police station is located. According to a TVM journalist who was present at the incident, two relatives from Marsa, aged 19 and 21, were beating up an 18-year-old from Santa Venera, causing him to bleed from the head.
Police officers heard the commotion from inside the station and tried to stop the fight, but the youths ignored their restraining attempts, prompting the officers to call in the RIU.
The 18-year-old was sent to Mater Dei for treatment under police escort, while the other two youths were taken to the police depot under arrest.
