Plymouth police hunt women after mass brawl at city pub
POLICE are trying to trace a number of women who may have been involved in a "large brawl" at a city pub.
Officers were called to the newly-reopened Diamond Queen bar in Edgcumbe Street, Stonehouse, at around 10.15pm on Saturday.
It is believed a relatively minor incident inside the premises spiralled out of control and saw two groups of women become involved in the brawl by the doorway.
The women were eventually pulled apart by two men and one of the groups left the area.
Paramedics from South Western Ambulance Service treated two women at the scene before they were taken to Derriford Hospital suffering minor injuries. Both were later released.
No arrests have yet been made although investigators have begun to take a number of statements.
Dan Peters, manager of the Diamond Queen said a local social club had chosen to hold their Christmas party at the bar on the night.
He said: "When it happened we immediately called the emergency services and handed over our CCTV.
"We don't know how it started but we certainly don't want things like this happening in our place."
Dan said the Diamond Queen bar – formerly known as the Brewer's Tap – was a "non-attitude" place.
He said: "We want a nice mix of people, which up until Saturday it was. We want to put on a bit of cabaret for people. We're having a mixture of local singers and national drag queens."
Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting crime reference EC/13/608.
