POLICE are appealing for witnesses and victims to come forward after brawl outside a petrol station in Hornsey Rise.

Officers say weapons were brandished and items thrown during the fight on Sunday, April 26.

A man, aged in his 40s, who was not involved in the initial altercation suffered injuries to his head and eye.

He was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service for treatment before being discharged.

Police are appealing for anyone else who may have been injured, or anyone who witnessed the fight or may have footage to come forward.

Two men – aged 20 and aged 18 – were arrested on suspicion of GBH. Both were taken to a north London police station and have been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in mid-May.

Detective Constable Dominic Panaite from Central North CID is investigating and said: “I know that there was a silver Nissan Micra on the forecourt of the petrol station at the time of the incident and the male driver saw the fight take place. I am appealing for this man, and anyone else who witnessed the incident to come forward.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have been injured as a result of the fight, even if your injuries were minor, please do get in touch.”
