A fight between two groups of Algerians and Senegalese yesterday left six men detained in the Valencia neighborhood of Orriols. Two of the individuals arrested needed medical attention for the blows from the sticks.
The violent acts occurred around 6 pm in San Juan de la Peña [street]. Two neighbors took videos of the brawl with their mobile telephones from balconies.
After receiving notice of the tumultuous brawl with sticks in the middle of the street, several patrols of the National Police and local Valencia police rushed to the scene and detained six of the people involved.
San Juan de la Peña was filled with police vehicles within a few minutes. Three of those detained are Algerians, two are from Senegal, and one was born in Gambia. On the ground, the officers found traces of blood and several sticks used in the fight.
