MORE information has been released after an altercation on Old Mill Lane.

At around 8.20pm on June 6, police received reports of an altercation near to a pond on Old Mill Lane.

Two groups of males - one including several boys - are believed to have been involved in verbal exchanges, which later broke out into a fight.

A 20-year-old from Wombwell suffered superficial lacerations to his back - after apparently being gouged by a stick.

He was taken to Barnsley Hospital, where he was treated and allowed to go home.

A 12-year-old Barnsley boy from the same group was also taken to hospital after swallowing water from the pond. He was treated and then released.

The two suspects, aged around 20, fled the scene.
