Police arrest 56 for rioting

Partiers went wild Sunday night, vandalising an abandoned fire station in Nørrebro

A party in Nørrebro got out of control Sunday night, leading to the arrest of 56 people on Jagtvej in Nørrebro and later under Knippelsbro bridge in the city centre. The majority of those apprehended were in their early 20s.

The party was held at a former fire station in the Nørrebro district, where 150 participants used an unauthorised key to gain entry. The partiers soon began to set fires and rip apart the building's cobblestones.

The violence later spread to the streets, where several young people had lit a bonfire outside the building. When the police arrived, the rioters threw stones at the officers from the building's rooftop and set fire to barricades they had made from waste containers and discarded building materials.

Several parked cars and 30 cars at a nearby dealership were damaged in the confrontation.

Nine people were arrested at the fire station, and a stretch of Jagtvej was blocked off by police. Later some of the rioters joined a party under Knippelsbro bridge in downtown Copenhagen. Spurred by rumours that bonfires would also be lit there, the police stepped in and made 47 more arrests.

All those detained were released, but 56 will face charges, stated Copenhagen police. Eight people arrested in the Jagtvej clash will be charged with creating a disturbance, while one person will be charged with assaulting a police officer. The 47 people detained under Knipplesbro face charges of disorderly conduct.
