Hectic night for the police

The police have had their hands full all over the country until Sunday night, with many reports of riots and amp mood.

In Kirkenes, a male festival goer has been arrested after threatening both guards and guests with a knife.

– When we arrived, there was control of the situation. Others had taken care of the person in question and the knife had been thrown away, says operations manager Lars Rune Hagen to TV 2.

The police will open a case on the matter.

– He is in Kirkenes now, we have questioned people on the spot, the operations manager concludes.

Several fights

Further south in the country, the police have more than enough to deal with.

– There are a lot of reports of disturbances and riots, says operations manager Marianne Mørch in the South-East police district.

The police have felt compelled to prioritize the more serious incidents.

– It is certain and certain that we have not had the capacity for everything, Mørch says.

Among the major incidents in the district is a fight between two women and a man in the center of Bø. The man was kicked in the head and fell to the ground, and was taken to the emergency room.

– Indicates that the offended party has been rude to a lady and her own lady. The result was that the victim went downhill and was fired by one of the ladies, the operations center reports.
