We are aware of a number of videos circulating on social media of two incidents in The Oval in the Firth Park area of Sheffield in the last week.
On Wednesday 15 June officers attended reports of disorder at around 9pm in The Oval. It is believed the households from two properties were involved in a verbal and physical altercation.
One man aged 50, two men aged 18 and one women aged 18 were arrested on suspicion of assault and public order offences. They have been released on police bail.
We were also called to a further incident yesterday evening (22 June) at around 11pm to reports of a large scale disturbance outside an address in The Oval. It is believed that the occupants of a property had been assaulted by a number of offenders. No arrests have yet been made. 
Inspector Alec Gibbons from the Sheffield North East Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We know how concerning incidents like this can be for the local community and I want to reassure people that enquiries by detectives are moving at pace. 
“Increased patrols are being carried out in the area to provide reassurance to the local public and I would encourage anyone with concerns to stop and speak to us. We are here to help you and provide support.”
Anyone who may have seen what happened, or may have any information to assist enquiries, is urged to report it to police by calling 101 and quoting incident number 1165 of 22 June. Any footage can also be  emailed to detectives by emailing with the incident number in the subject line.
Alternatively, you can stay completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.
