Fight foiled by CCTV

Published Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Police arrested four men after Enfield Council’s CCTV operators helped monitor a fight involving more than a dozen people outside a Palmers Green takeaway last month.

The incident happened outside Peri Peri in Aldermans Green Lane just after midnight on Wednesday 29 April. A fight broke out with participants using sticks and golf club on each other but they had gone back inside the takeaway by the time police arrived.

The Enfield Council operators liaised with police over the radio network and as a result four men were arrested for Grievous Bodily Harm and take to Edmonton Police Station for questioning. 

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “Violent crime has no place in our borough, so I am very pleased that our CCTV operators were able to help police officers secure a number of arrests after this frightening and unpleasant incident.”
