Man arrested in Batoum Gardens with suspected acid bottle

Several of you reported seeing what one of you described as a "nasty looking incident" on monday night at Batoum Gardens, Hammersmith. I put in a call to the police and they have issued me the following statement:

"We were called on Monday 18th April at 17:45hrs to Batoum Gardens, W6 to reports of a male being chased by a group at the location.

A 20yr old male was arrested on suspicion of an offensive weapon (a bottle believed to contain either acid or ammonia)"

Nice. It's incidents like this that make you realise how under-valued the police are - we're always quick to criticise them but would you like to be the one confronting someone with an acid or ammonia filled bottle? 

1030 UPDATE: It turns out that there were actually four arrests, here's the latest statement from the Police:

"Police were called on Monday 18th April at approx. 17:55hrs to reports of a distrubance along Batoum Gardens, W6.  Four males were arrested (aged 24yrs, 21yrs and 26yrs) taken to Fulham Police Station and (aged 20yrs) taken to Hammersmith Police Station.  Inquiries continue."
