Five arrests were made in a special police operation to target violent criminals in Windsor and Maidenhead.
Thames Valley Police dispatched 18 officers on Tuesday, September 2 to track down violent crime suspects.
Officers arrested five suspects, interviewed five more and made progress in their enquiries for 13 crimes.
The arrests relate to incidents of assault and actual bodily harm (ABH) in Windsor town centre, Winkfield Road in Windsor, Datchet, Dedworth, and Woodlands Park in Maidenhead.
Two 21-year-old men have been arrested, as have men aged 34, 27, and 32.
Inspector Neil Misselbrook said: “It is not acceptable for people to come to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and commit violent offences. They will be challenged and brought to justice utilising all the police powers available.
“We target violent crime and track down suspects 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, however targeted days of action like this mean officers can be dedicated to solving specific crimes and arresting those responsible.
“The area is committed to dealing with these offences, not only on an investigative level but also preventative in the work completed by officers dealing with the night time economy and patrolling on a daily basis.”
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
