Police in Amsterdam evacuated large sections of the city’s central Vondelpark on Friday evening to end a massive brawl involving an estimated 60 people.

Police on motorbikes and horses intervened following reports that a gang of youths were harassing people, pulling them off their bicycles. When the police arrived, they were pelted with bottles and other objects. Five arrests were made.

The park was very crowded because of the warm weather.
