Police districts around the country are reporting a busy night. In Oslo, there were six armed police interventions within a few hours.

In addition to a serious incident of violence in Oslo, the police had to move out after a report that 100-150 russ participants in several russ buses gathered at McDonalds at E18 in Asker when several fights broke out at 5 AM.

“We went there with a patrol to calm the situation. Several russ participants were fighting when we arrived, and they did not stop even though the police were there. 

“So we had to send another patrol. When they arrived, there was still fighting, so we ended up sending even more patrols. Then we eventually got control of the situation,” operations manager Gjermund Stokkli told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

He says several people were slightly injured but that no one was reported.

Hectic night

Overall, it seems that the Oslo police had a very busy night. From midnight until around 2:30 AM, six armed missions were carried out, according to the newspaper Dagbladet.

Operations Manager Gjermund Stokkli described the number of assignments in such a short time as highly unusual. 

On Sunday morning, his colleague Bjørn Gunnar Nysæther agreed that the night was quite busy. 

“A lot happened in a short time… From reports of fighting to reports of several different weapons,” he told the newspaper.
