They were arrested after officers today conducted a series of raids connected to the night of violence last Monday, June 4.

At around 8.30pm that night, a 31-year-old man was reportedly assaulted at a bookmakers on London Road. He sustained a serious facial injury and was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

At 11.45pm, a property on Wostenholm Road in Nether Edge was damaged, with what are believed to be bullet marks left in the building, though no one was injured in this incident.

Finally, about an hour later, in the early hours of last Tuesday, damage was caused to a takeaway on West Street where a disturbance reportedly broke out.

A 36-year-old man previously arrested on suspicion of assault in connection with the London Road incident has been released under investigation as enquiries continue.

During that first incident, a silver Ford Focus parked and blocked the road for a short period of time before heading away from the city centre.
