The police have apprehended several in suspicion of complicity to Wednesday’s scuffle in Jyväskylä City Library, but refrain from revealing any details or backgrounds for the present. The incident, which saw a security guard sustain minor stab wounds, occurred after three men were refused entry to the presentation of a book on the Finnish extreme right. The incident is investigated as aggravated assault and assault, although the police stress that the nature of the suspicions may change as the investigation advances. STT sources claim that the police did not arrive to the scene until a second emergency call was placed.
