Officers in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after it is alleged three men were assaulted during a large fight in the Melcombe Regis area of the town - with six men being arrested.

The incident happened at around 2.05am on Tuesday 2 July 2013 in Bond Street, and continued onto Maiden Street.

It's reported the incident initially started when three men were asked to leave the Lazy Lizard pub, and ended in a fight between seven people.

A 37-year-old Weymouth man suffered a minor head injury, but was knocked unconscious for a short time.

Detective Constable Peter Gray, of Weymouth CID, said: "This incident took place in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday 2 July 2013.

"I am appealing for witnesses to the incident to contact Dorset Police in confidence, in particular anyone who saw the alleged disturbance start on Bond Street.

"I am also keen to speak with anyone who may have further information about the incident to help me establish exactly what happened."

Four Weymouth men, one aged 30 and the other three aged 23, an 18-year-old man from Dorchester, and a 20-year-old Bridport man have all been arrested in relation to this incident and bailed until early August 2013.
