Appeal after pub altercation in Gosport

HAMPSHIRE POLICE have launched an appeal for witnesses following an altercation outside a Gosport pub last weekend, which saw three men treated for facial injures and a further three males arrested as a result.

Officers were called at approximately 11:54pm on July 23 (Saturday) to reports of a fight taking place outside of the George & Dragon pub near Gosport Town Centre, on South Street at the left junction to the car park.

Upon arrival at the scene police locate two men in their 20s and a man in his 30s with facial injuries. None of the injuries are life threatening and they were all given the appropriate treatment by medical professionals.

A 21-year-old man from Fareham, a 30-year-old man from Gosport and a 23-year-old man from Lee-on-the-Solent were arrested on suspicion of affray following the incident. All three have been released from police custody on conditional bail while the police enquiries continue to develop over the coming days and weeks.

As part of this investigation police would like to hear from anyone who was in the surrounding areas at the time who may have witnessed the incident or has information about what took place, including any footage.

Given that the incident happened at a busy period investigating officers believe that there were a number of people they are yet to speak to. This could include those victims with unreported injuries from the altercation.

Anyone with information or footage is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101 and quote the case’s reference number 44220297011. They can also submit details using the online reporting tool available on the Hampshire Police website, with support and guidance available here.

Alternatively, readers can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously by calling 0800 555 111, or via their anonymous online form which can be found through their website: https://orlo.uk/250kR.
