Two teenagers have been arrested but detectives have published a picture of a man they believe is connected to the incident and have asked for the public’s help in tracing his movements.

An appeal by officers on social media said: “Any idea who this person is? We need to speak with them about assault in #Doncaster. Call 101 with any info.”

The incident happened on Tuesday, November 10, at around 8.50pm.

Police said a group of men and women were in the interchange, next to the Frenchgate Centre, when the disturbance was reported.

Two more men are understood to have joined the crowd, and they are alleged to have assaulted members of the group.

A short time later, there was another clash involving the same group near to the interchange, where it is alleged a further assault took place.

A police spokesman said: “Five people suffered injuries, three of those required hospital treatment.

“Two 18-year-old men have been arrested in connection with the incident and have been bailed pending further enquiries.”

Police investigating the incident have studied CCTV footage taken from the cameras in the interchange to try to find clues to help their investigation.

Officers are also appealing for information and witnesses should call 101 quoting incident number 1126 of November 10, 2015.

The interchange is Doncaster’s busiest bus station, located next to the borough’s railway station, and with a direct escalator link to the Frenchgate shopping centre.

A South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive spokesman, said: “Passenger and staff safety in our interchanges and on public transport is our upmost priority.
