Read Time:1 Minute, 21 Second

The police are closing three Hells Angels clubhouses in Copenhagen and extending search zones.

It is still the police’s assessment that a conflict is unfolding between two groups in the biker and gang milieu. The explosion on Svanevej in Copenhagen’s Northwest district at the Hells Angels clubhouse on Saturday morning is being investigated as a deliberate act and as part of the conflict.

To prevent similar incidents and ensure the safety of residents in the areas, Copenhagen Police have decided to close three Hells Angels clubhouses. This is done in accordance with the law prohibiting access to certain properties, better known as the biker law.

The affected Hells Angels clubhouses are located at Svanevej 5 in Copenhagen’s Northwest district, Tømmerup Stationsvej 8B in Kastrup, and Siljangade 10 in Sydhavnen.

The closure means that it is prohibited to be present at these three locations, starting from Monday evening and until at least September 25th at 7:00 PM.

-“The very violent incidents we have witnessed are completely unacceptable. Citizens should be able to feel safe in their neighborhoods and throughout the police district, and we are now using one of the most powerful tools to put maximum pressure on these groups and to prevent further violent attacks,” says Police Director Anne Tønnes, Copenhagen Police.

Extending Search Zones

Copenhagen Police have also decided to extend the two search zones that were established on August 28, 2023. One zone covers Christiania and an area of Amager, while the other covers an area of Nørrebro and Northwest.

The search zones will be maintained until at least Tuesday, September 26th at 6:00 PM.
