UK police arrest 6 people after Lancashire college knife attack

 Six individuals were arrested after a gang entered a college in Leyland town, England, carrying knives and threatening students, the Lancashire Constabulary said in a statement, ONA reports citing BBC.

Police stated the attack at Runshaw College resulted in a 17-year-old boy being nicked on the arm.

"A sixth arrest has been made following an incident of disorder close to a college in Leyland", the statement read.

The incident occurred at about 4 p.m. (16:00 GMT) on 4 March when a knife-wielding group of males had come to confront a rival group "in relation to a prearranged fight", according to police.

"We know that this disorder is related to a personal issue between two members of each group. There is nothing to suggest there are any further fights planned", Gary Crowe, the chief inspector from South Ribble Police, was quoted as saying in the statement.
