Two men were left injured they were filmed fighting with machetes on a residential street in Lancashire.
In footage of the incident, the men can be seen thrashing their weapons at each other around 3.15pm on Sunday in Morecambe. One of them is topless, while the other wears a hoodie.
Both of them appeared to sustain injuries in the fight, with the one man later sharing photographs of deep gashes to his arm and the side of his neck.
Officers from Lancashire Police said two men, aged 31 and 26, have been arrested for assault in connection with the fight.
Sgt James Pinder, of Lancashire Police said: ‘Two men have been arrested by police in connection with the incident, but we know more people were in the area at the time of the offence and I would encourage witnesses to contact us.
‘I realise this will have caused concern in Morecambe but incidents of this nature are rare and we want to reassure residents patrols have been increased in the area.
‘If you have any information which could assist our enquiries or you witnessed the incident please come forward.’
The incident comes just hours after police were called to a fight involving weapons in Corporation Park, Blackburn, at around 11.30am.
One man was found to have suffered head injuries, while a second had stab wounds on his arm, chest and back. Both were taken to hospital.
An investigation into what happened is underway, but no arrests have been made. Officers said the two men were attacked.
Det Ch Insp Derry Crorken, of Blackburn Police, said: ”I understand this must have been very frightening and concerning for many people who were in the park at the time and I want to reassure residents we are doing everything possible to arrest those responsible.
‘This is being treated as very much an isolated incident and patrols have been increased in the area.’
Police have not said the two incidents are linked.
