ESSEX Police have made one arrest following a fight in George Street, Grays last night, Tuesday, November 28.
Plain clothed Metropolitan police officers were in the area at the time when a fight between around 10 men broke out and stepped in to break it up. The officers were in the area following a joint operation that had taken place earlier in the day with Operation Raptor.
One man pulled a knife out and attempted to stab the officers multiple times.
The group fled on foot.
Essex officers deployed to the area have arrested one man who remains in custody.
A 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted GBH with intent, affray and threats with an offensive weapon.
Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact Grays CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Investigating officer DC Marc Makin said, “There is no suggestion that anyone has been stabbed, however we are aware of one victim who was injured during the fight. We would like to make a direct appeal to this man to come forward and talk to us.
“Officers from different forces will always be on hand to help out with incidents even if it is not within the district they are actively patrolling. We would like to thank the Metropolitan police officers for the action they took out of their area in the interest of public safety.”
