Police Mass fight of dozens of people in a restaurant in Turku – Police: “Law enforcement was completely inadequate”

According to the restaurant staff, 20–30 people were involved in the melee. The restaurant’s stewards had not taken control of the situation.

Turku A large mass fight broke out the night before Saturday in the restaurant Studio on Linnankatu in the city center, the police of Southwest Finland says.

According to the restaurant staff, 20–30 people were involved in the melee. The restaurant’s stewards had not taken control of the situation.

Police emptied and closed the restaurant for the rest of the evening because public order and safety could not be maintained there. A police bulletin says the restaurant’s policing was completely inadequate given the circumstances.

According to preliminary police information, the fight involved a showdown between at least two different groups. Inspector Joonas Tikka told Turku Sanomat earlier today that the police arrested a few of those involved in the fight. Some of the fighters had been in possession of blade weapons.

On-call investigator Jari Riiali told Turku Sanomat at half past nine in the morning, however, that no one was seriously injured in the fight. No criminal reports were recorded for the case and no criminal investigation will therefore be opened.

Southwest Finland police had more than 300 alert missions last night, several of which involved violence. After the skirmish of Restaurant Studio in Turku, there was another mass fight on Aurakatu, where the police were alerted. Blade guns were used in the fight, which also caused life-threatening injuries, police say. Two people were taken to hospital.

The Pori Market Square, on the other hand, stabbed the man life-threateningly before dawn. The case is suspected of a crime against life and health committed with a blade weapon.

In addition, several people were apprehended at night on suspicion of other crimes and for aggressive or disruptive behavior.

Commissioner Joonas Tikka tells BTI that, in his understanding, the Korona period has not increased people’s disturbing behavior, at least in southwestern and southwestern Finland.

“I think pretty much the same amounts are going as in the so-called old normal.”

There has been little disruption in restaurants and nightclubs, as the shops have been largely closed.

“The problems have gone with the people. For example, a year ago, they focused pretty much on four walls (people’s homes), ”says Tikka.
