Another Swedish House Mafia Show Marred by Stabbings and Arrests
Published Jul 16, 2012If this all sounds familiar, it is. One week after a Swedish House Mafia concert was plagued by stabbings and arrests, a similar incident occurred at the electro act's show in Buckinghamshire, UK.
The show took place at Milton Keynes Bowl on Saturday (July 14) as part of the group's farewell tour, and as NME reports, there were three stabbing incidents in which two 23-year-old men and one 24-year-old man were hurt. One of them is currently in hospital with a punctured lung, while another received a cut to his head and has since been discharged from hospital. The other was treated for his injuries onsite.
The perpetrator of the violence has not yet been found, but police are hoping that concertgoers may be able to help them find a white male who is described as being in his early 20s and was wearing a blue Nike T-shirt with black track pants and a black jacket.
Detective chief inspector Justin Fletcher said in a statement, "This appears to have been an isolated incident, and overall we are very pleased with how the event passed off, but we would like to trace the person responsible for this assault."
Making matters even worse, three men at the show were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class-A drugs.
Overall, this show was slightly less crime-ridden than last week's gig, in which a man stabbed four people, someone died of a suspected drug overdose, and there was a fight involving knives and broken bottles. A reported 30 people were arrested last week.
