Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward after arresting two people on suspicion of GBH after an incident in Basildon.
We were called at about 3.20am on Saturday 16 September to reports of an assault at Unit 7 in Festival Leisure Park.
Officers arrived at the scene within five minutes of being called and quickly arrested one man on suspicion of GBH and possession of an offensive weapon. A second man was also arrested on suspicion of GBH and possession of an offensive weapon.
Two people were taken to hospital with injuries.
Now, officers want to hear from anyone else at the scene who may be able to help with their enquiries.
