Two arrests have been made after a car crashed into a parked vehicle, before a serious assault took place in Hemel Hempstead. 

The incident took place at around 7.55pm on Friday (June 2), on London Road.

At that time, a black Vauxhall Corsa collided with a silver Vaulkswagen.


A "physical altercation" ensued, in which one individual was seriously assaulted.

Two arrests were made by unmarked police officers, following the incident.

These included a 47-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault.

He has since been released whilst police continue their enquirees.

A 24-year-old woman was also taken into custody, however, she was later "de-arrested" and issued with a traffic offence report for driving without due care and attention.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire police said: "Driving into a parked car is bad, doing it drunk at nearly 2x the legal limit is worse.

"Having a physical altercation also, and seriously assaulting someone as a result of the incident is unacceptable."
