TWO drivers were caught up in a city centre fight in front of tourists and shoppers.
The road, at the junction of Walton Street and Beaumont Street, was blocked around midday yesterday when the fight happened, police said.
A 50-year-old driver of a car was assaulted. His injuries are not thought to be serious. The driver of a white van, a 30-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and assault and was in custody last night.
Sgt Matthew Sulley of the Oxford City Centre Unit said: “The road was blocked during the incident, and lots of people will have seen what happened.
“I’d like to speak to as many people as possible who saw the events unfold, and also thank those members of the public who stopped patrolling police to request help, and also those who assisted the injured male.
“From what we know, the situation would have been quite shocking.
“We currently have a man in custody.”
