A man was rushed to the emergency hospital with head injuries and another is sitting in jail after a physical altercation about Pokemon Go in Sandefjord.

– We noticed a fight at a swimming area in Sandefjord at 1:00am. It turned out to be between two men in their 40s over the new Pokemon Go game, said Merete Kvaal, operations manager of the South East police.

It is unknown what the two were arguing about exactly, except that it referred to the popular mobile game Pokemon Go, the two men came into contact with each other in the swimming area, police said.

– I do not know why men in their 40s are arguing let alone causing serious bodily harm about that sort of game, says Kvaal.
The extent of damage to the victim is unknown, but he has bled from the head. The arrested man will be questioned Friday. Several witnesses are also being questioned.
