A FIGHT broke out in Sandbanks on Thursday, leading to a man being bottled and assaulting two police officers.

At around 10.30pm, a fight broke out at Kite Beach.

Officers were already in the area conducting the first night of their Operation Sandman, focusing on tackling antisocial behaviour in Sandbanks.

The “main aggressor” in the fight was reportedly bottled, and when police were treating him as a victim, he assaulted two officers and was arrested.

Neighbourhood policing teams, traffic officers, the police helicopter and police dogs were called to help the situation.

Half an hour later, a dispersal notice was issued and if those people issued with the notice returned to the location they would be arrested.
