Officers were called to Eckington after a series of related incidents at around 8.30am on Friday, May 20.

After a number of people were allegedly assaulted at Sals Car Sales in Dronfield Road, two cars – a black Audi Q5 and a white VW Tiguan – left the site and drove along Dronfield Road towards Marsh Lane.

The two then drove down Ashmore Avenue – where it is believed a collision occurred between the two cars – and then a further fight took place in the street between a group of men from both cars.
