Doncaster crimes set to feature on TV's 999: What's Your Emergency? tonight

The concerned caller was afraid that a man was pinned up against a wall and it sounded “like they’re killing each other.”

PC Alice Marshall and Matt Spaven were sent to the scene.

PC Marshall, said: “On Friday and Saturday nights in Doncaster drunk people are always looking for a fight.

“You would think that it would be safer to drink from home but there are many fights. “

The birthday party had quickly turned into violence at the home of a Balkan family.

“It’s unbelievable how drunk people can get,” Spaven said.

At the scene multiple men were shirtless and there was smashed glass.

But the residents insisted nothing was wrong.

PC Marshall sent party goers home due to the noise complaint.

She said: “This can’t continue tonight.

“If we get called back someone will be arrested.”

Spaven said: “We get called the fun police a lot.

“Which is probably right, we do spoil fun but we can’t have people being out of control.”

The residents claimed that they would not have been persecuted for loud music in their home country of the Balkan’s.
