They've now confirmed one person was assaulted and suffered facial injuries.

Seven people were arrested and have been released on police bail while enquiries continue into the incident, which has now been confirmed as including an assault and drug related offences.

A Guernsey Police spokesman said on Monday afternoon;

“Guernsey Police are continuing enquiries into an incident in the early hours of Saturday morning. Seven people have been arrested for involvement in an incident where a man was assaulted and sustained facial injuries. Hospital treatment was required, but he was released the same day.

"Some of those arrested are also under investigation for drug related offences that came to light during police action.  Everyone arrested were subsequently released on bail while police continue with their enquiries. We are not seeking any further witnesses at this time.”
