A police investigation is underway after a “disturbance” involving 15 – 20 people early this morning [June 8] in Dockyard. Some of the people involved were visitors, and one man was arrested and released without charge.
The police said they have not received a formal complaint regarding this matter, and no weapons were used during the altercation.
A police spokesperson said, “At 3:15am on Friday, June 8th 2012, police officers were outside a popular Dockyard night spot when a disturbance took place in the street involving 15-20 persons. Some of those involved were visitors.
“As a result, additional police units were called to the scene. In the meantime, officers already at the location dispersed the combatants and made one arrest. After interview, that man was released without charge.

“In line with our commitment to have additional resources in the Dockyard area during the summer period, the Bermuda Police Service will continue to monitor those levels and respond appropriately.
