A DIAMOND Jubilee celebration turned sour after two people started fighting in front of terrified families.
The incident happened in the entrance of a children's face painting tent about 3.25pm on Saturday (June 2) at the event in Waterside when a man and a youth, who know each other, got involved in a physical confrontation.
The man is described as white, in his 30s, slim and wore a long black coat at the time. The youth is in his late teens, of a heavier build and at the time was pushing a pushchair with a young child.
Police are appealing for witnesses to provide more information about the incident after the two people involved claimed they were assaulted by each other.
PC Gill Greenhouse from Evesham Police Station said the two people were involved in a long-standing dispute.
"This came to a head after a chance meeting at the Waterside but their accounts of what happened are conflicting so I am looking for any independent witnesses," he said.
"There were a lot of people and families at the Jubilee celebrations and I am sure someone would have seen it take place, so I am asking them to get in touch with West Mercia Police."
Anyone who saw the incident or has any information should contact the police on the new non-emergency number 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
