LONDON (Reuters) – Sony Music said it had been involved in a violent altercation at its UK head office in central London on Friday.

Armed Officers Rushed to the Sony Office After They Were Alerted to the Incident at Derry Street, Kensington, where they suffered from two injuries.

London's Metropolitan Police said the incident had not been treated as terrorism.

"Two members of the catering team were involved in a violent altercation," Sony said in a statement. "The incident is now in the hands of the Metropolitan Police."

Police, who evacuated the offices as a precaution, said the two men had been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. They were both taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The London Evening Standard newspaper said that it appeared to have broken out between two men in the staff.

"There's a lot of shouting and commotion," an unnamed witness told the paper. "One had fall over and was on his back and the other was standing over him. I thought he was raining punches down, but then I saw the knife. "
