More than 100 people were involved in riots the Swedish city of Borås on Tuesday night.
A major police response was required to mitigate conflict in the 'no-go zone' of Norrby as a dispute between rival gangs spiraled out of control, Samnytt reports.
A special task force and helicopter were deployed after hours of unrest led to at least one officer suffering a head injury, and reinforcements were called in from the nearby city of Gothenburg.
"We tried to disperse people and make everyone calm down. There are a large number of people who have quarreled and we have many patrols working on the incident," investigation leader Johan Novenius told Borås Tidning.
Both adults and children were involved in the massive brawl, authorities revealed on Wednesday.
"There are suspicions of crime and we have some footage to go through," police chief Mattias Ramsö told SVT.
"A report has been drawn up for violence against an officer and violent rioting."
While mainstream media typically insist migrant-heavy 'no-go zones' don't exist in Sweden – preferring to instead refer to them as 'vulnerable areas' – reporters were effectively blocked from entering Norrby by masked men.

"I'm pissed off. Some young men have aggressively, with insults and threats, prevented my colleagues from doing their job. It makes me angry and sad," said SVT editorial director Anton Svendsen.
"When you try to prevent journalists from interviewing other people and moving freely, it is ultimately a threat to democracy."
A police spokesman called the confrontation "unacceptable."
