A vicious fight took place in the early hours of the morning on Sunday the 12th of October outside of Baa Bar in Fallowfield forcing police to close Wilbraham Road at the junction with Wilmslow and Moseley Road.
The fight erupted between two large groups of drinkers just after 3:15 am and although shocked students looked on as the violence escalated it is yet to be confirmed if any Manchester students where directly involved in the violence or why the incident began.
As the violence became more severe riot police vans were called to stop the violence from becoming any further out of control.
Despite the apparent scale of the fight only one man, in his early 20s, has been reported to be suffering from any injuries, having received a blow to the head. However despite the potential seriousness of his injuries, he is not thought to be in a serious condition.
Police officers say that so far one man has been arrested on suspicion of assault, but enquiries are still ongoing.
The area where the fist-fight occurred is very close to the halls of residence of the Fallowfield Campus, and many fast food restaurants. For this reason it is usually bustling with people, and very rarely unoccupied.
Therefore if anyone has any information about the bust-up or was present at the time of its occurrence, they should call 0161 211 2113, Greater Manchester Police on 0161 856 4973, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
