Several people were reportedly injured in a late-night mass brawl inside a packed cocktail bar in St Albans at the weekend.  

Police were called to Slug and Lettuce in Victoria Street at around 11.15pm on Saturday (March 5) after a “verbal altercation” kicked off.  

“This then turned into a physical altercation, and several people sustained injuries,” said a spokesperson for Hertfordshire Police.  

Two men were arrested on suspicion of assault at the time and later released. No formal allegations of drink spiking were reported to police at the time. 

Further information has since come to light regarding the altercation and officers are now appealing for further witnesses and information. 

Detective Inspector Adrian Lysak said: “We are now working to build a full picture of the events that took place on the night.  

“Initial enquiries have resulted in a lack of sufficient evidence, so we are now asking the public for their assistance.
