A MOB of people wielding hammers, bats and axes smashed up cars in Dunchurch last night (Thursday April 4).

Police were called to what they described as ‘large-scale disorder’ in Adkinson Avenue just after 9.20pm.

They arrested a 32-year-old man from Rugby, a 30-year-old woman from Rugby and an 18-year-old man from Long Lawford on suspicion of assault.

Two men, aged 29 and 50, were taken to hospital with head injuries, which are not thought to be life-threatening.

Detective Inspector Cindy Stephenson from Rugby CID said: “We have launched a thorough investigation into this disorder which left two people requiring treatment for head injuries.

“We will be carrying out enquiries in the area today and are committed to identifying all those responsible and bringing them to justice.”

Anyone with information can call police on 101, quoting incident 361 of April 4, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
