Ten people, both from Messina and from other provinces, were arrested tonight by personnel from the Messina police headquarters. They are all involved in a violent brawl between motorcyclists that broke out last night, around 9 pm, along viale San Martino. For a man and a woman, who were injured, it was necessary to transport them to the hospital: they reported 10 days of prognosis for head trauma and various bruises. When the officers arrived at the scene, after reporting a patrol engaged in anti-gathering checks, some of the participants in the brawl had already left. On the ground, the policemen found numerous traces of blood, an abandoned wooden club, a knife and a truncheon. Having carried out the first checks and having ascertained, also thanks to the inspection carried out on a Harley Davidson abandoned by the escaped motorcyclists, that the group was made up of members of well-known motorcycle clubs from different locations including Reggio Calabria, Syracuse and Mistretta (Messina), the agents immediately set out on the trail of the refugees. Two were identified and blocked along Viale Europa, while they were taking the motorway junction towards Catania. One of them was reported for illegal carrying of weapons because he was found in possession of a snap knife. Near the San Francesco roadstead, the policemen stopped three other motorcyclists ready to embark for Calabria. When the policemen arrived, one of the three, with a conspicuous wound in his hand, tried to get rid of a cutter by throwing it into a waste bin. For him too it was necessary to seek medical treatment with a diagnosis of 25 days. Another biker was found in possession of a screwdriver hidden in the side pocket of the motorcycle and a leather vest with an evident cut and with numerous traces of blood. From the investigations it emerged that the violent brawl was triggered by internal disagreements and rivalries within the motorcycle club to which the motorcyclists involved belong. Investigations continue to identify the other participants in the brawl.
