Bloody brawl in Helsingør sends young man to hospital

Police continue to investigate the bloody assault which lead to a young immigrant being airlifted to hospital

A 19-year-old man was flown by helicopter to Rigshospitalet on Tuesday evening after sustaining injuries in a violent brawl in the Vapnagård housing estate in Helsingør.

Police are still investigating the scene, but have so far made no arrests.

“We’re just now starting to find out what has happened,” Hans Jakob Reckendorff, the head of security at North Zealand Police, told Ekstra Bladet.

“The victim was flown to Rigshospitalet late last night. He is out of danger and there is no news about his condition this morning.”

According to Ekstra Bladet, police and ambulance officials remained present at the scene of the brawl until early this morning.

No arrests so far
Reckendorff was hesitant to pass comment on the events of last night.

“I can only say that we are investigating further. I do not want to speculate on whether we have any suspects in sight,” he said.

There is, however, evidence that there may have been a showdown between a biker gang and immigrants. A witness told Ekstra Bladet that they saw somewhere between 10 and 20 men with Bandidos logos beating a young immigrant man on Tuesday evening.

According to the witness, the young man had allegedly thrown branches at a passing car, which had then stopped. Soon afterwards, four or five cars ran a number of red lights to join the scene, which was flooded with men from the Bandidos clubhouse on Stubbedamsvej.

Reckendorff does not yet want to confirm the witness’s information.

According to Frederiksborg County newspaper, the victim is a 19-year-old man.
