Surrey Police has issued a witness appeal to a brawl in Cranleigh High Street.

A spokesman said an altercation broke out between a group of men at around 5.10pm on Friday (September 11).

A number of police units were called to reports of people being injured near the Superdrug store and Sainsbury’s car park.

Four men were arrested shortly after police attended and have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Witnesses reported seeing some of the people who were involved leaving the area near before officers arrived.

Detective Sergeant Jim Strugnell said: “A violent incident broke out in the middle of Cranleigh High Street at what would have been a very busy time on Friday afternoon so I believe there are people who saw this incident unfold who have not yet spoken with police and I would urge these witnesses to make contact.

“We believe those involved in the incident are known to each other.”

The men who were arrested were aged 18, 22, 23 and 53-years-old.

People with information were urged to contact Surrey Police quoting reference 45150082156.

Information can also be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
