Altercation between several people on Southsea junction leads to appeal for information

AN APPEAL for information has been launched following an argument involving at least six people on a Southsea street corner this afternoon.

Three adults and three children were seen arguing on the junction of Grove Road South and Queens Crescent at about 2.50pm today.

Members of the group - seemingly a mother with three children and two other women - were aggressively shouting at each other.

One person, accused of pouring hot water over another person involved, said that they had done so because they had been ‘punched’ by them.

Police were called, and the officers who attended found a group of six people involved in the altercation.

After the police van arrived, a yellow car pulled up behind the vehicle, and the driver swore and shouted at officers.

Police told the driver to ‘watch your mouth before you get arrested’.

Hampshire Constabulary is working to establish what happened.

No-one involved has reported any injuries at this time.

If anyone was in the area at the time and saw what happened, police ask them to call 101 quoting reference 44210312569.
