The Dutch motorcycle gang Satudarah celebrated the establishment of its first 'Northside' department in Denmark, but they didn't exactly receive a warm welcome from the authorities. 

As Satudarah members partied Saturday night in Bagsværd, they were visited by a large number of police officers, who made three arrests. 

The three people arrested were all foreign Satudarah members and have been charged with possession of knives and blunt weapons.

According to Copenhagen Vestegn Police, local immigrant gang Værebros Hårde Kerne (VHK) has joined forces with the Dutch motorcycle gang. The club is taking over control of organised crime in the Netherlands, where it is seen as being even more ruthless than rival international gang Hells Angels (HA).

Last week, the gang confirmed to Ekstra Bladet tabloid that former HA member and convicted murderer Ole Bonnesen Nielsen had joined the Dutch motorcycle gang's Danish department. The gang also shot down rumours of accepting Bandidos member Brian Sandberg.

Police finally confirm gang
Following this weekend's raid, Copenhagen Vestegn Police confirmed in a press release that Satudarah has established itself on Danish ground.

“We are following the gangs closely and we have been familiar with the development for a long time. So this weekend's display of force was not a surprise to us,” police inspector Bent Isager-Nielsen said.

Although he didn't think that a new gang war was brewing, Isager-Nielsen acknowledged that the emergence of a new gang in Gladsaxe could eventually threaten the safety of residents in the area.

"We can't guarantee anything, because we know that these idiots sometimes get their guns and fight each other extremely violently," he said. "So it would be stupid to say that they are completely harmless to regular people. But our analysis shows no reason for residents in the Gladsaxe area to be concerned."
