Four males were arrested.

All four were remanded into custody to appear before Hatfield Magistrates’ Court today (Monday 13 September).

Neighbourhood Inspector Mark Collins said: “I fully understand that this incident will have caused alarm among local residents however, I’d like to try and reassure people that we believe this to have been a targeted attack, involving people who are acquainted and mainly live outside of the area. No members of the public were harmed during the incident. Arrests were swiftly made and charges have now been brought.

“Due to the severity of the incident, I would ask that videos and images from the scene are not shared on social media, as this may harm the integrity of the investigation and subsequent court case as we move forward. It is vital that the case is allowed to proceed unimpeded. Thank you.”
