Two people have been arrested after a brawl involving 20 people broke out at an Oxford pub.
The fight took place at The Nelson on Between Towns Road, Cowley, at about 16:20 GMT on Friday.
A police helicopter was scrambled after several people ran from the scene following the arrival of Thames Valley Police officers.
A 31-year-old man was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital with a cut to his head and later discharged.
Police said two men were arrested and the pub was closed as police carried out an investigation. One window was smashed.
Det Sgt Simon Hannam said: "This was a large fight which took place in the late afternoon in what is essentially a busy commercial and residential area.
"Anyone who may have been in the pub and witnessed the disorder, or if anyone saw anything outside the pub at that time... we would like to hear from them."
