Two people were left with serious injuries following a fight – believed to be with weapons – in a gym car park on Friday night.  

Police were called to the YMCA gym on Gonville Place in Cambridge at around 7.20pm on January 15 after reports of a violent incident.  

An 18-year-old man from Cambridge was arrested in connection with the incident, however he has since been released from custody pending further investigation. 

It is believed weapons were used and two people suffered serious injuries as a result of the violence. 

DI Dave Savill said: “We have identified one of the men involved, however there are significant concerns for the welfare of the other man who we believe was seriously injured during this incident, therefore my plea is for that individual to either get in touch with us, or seek urgent medical assistance.
