An odd video has emerged showing an unfortunate scrap that erupted in broad daylight on Tickhill Street, Bradford.
The incident involved weapon-yielding thugs who were seen grappling, punching, and using makeshift contraptions to strike each other. The footage, which has been shared on Twitter, shows a man lying unconscious on the ground while the action continued around him.
The incident occurred just before 8am on Sunday and has left the local community in awe. Bystanders could be heard screaming for the incident to stop as chaos ensued. Some of them even tried to flee the area as more men joined in.
It is unclear what caused the altercation, but West Yorkshire police have responded to the scene after receiving reports of a disturbance with persons injured.
Three men, aged between 20 and 23, were arrested on suspicion of affray and Section 18 wounding. They were taken into custody following medical treatment.
Police have confirmed that two men were released on bail pending further enquiries, while the third was released under investigation.
Enquiries into the incident are ongoing, and anyone with footage that may assist the investigation is asked to contact Bradford District CID using the crime reference number 13230127451. Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
The video shows the groups were grappling and going at each other while an unconscious man was lying on the ground. One man was even kicked in the head by a rival while he was on the ground.
Bystanders were terrified as the incident continued to escalate. They could be heard screaming out for the action to stop, but the violent thugs paid no heed. The footage appears to be captured from inside a car as traffic stood still, unable to pass through the chaos.
