A marked police car

We’re seeking witnesses following an assault incident in Burnham-on-Sea.

We were called to reports of a disturbance at Vinnie’s Bar, The Esplanade between 1.25-1.40am on Saturday 24 November.

A man and woman were reported to have caused a large amount of disorder and violence.

The male suspect fled from the premises and was followed by officers who detained and arrested him shortly afterwards.  It is believed the suspect may have been involved in an incident with several men in Abingdon Street, prior to his arrest.

A woman was arrested at the bar.

A number of staff members had been assaulted.

The man and woman arrested have been released under investigation.

We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the public house at the time of the incident or Abingdon Street who may be able to help our enquiries.
