Two rival gangs clashed on Kungsgatan in central Gothenburg at lunchtime on Saturday. Around 20 people, who were masked and bearing baseball bats and iron rods, were involved in the brawl.
According to police in the city, a number of members of an extreme right wing organisation were handing out flyers on the street when they were approached by left wing activists.
Four people have been identified by the police but there were no arrests on Saturday afternoon. Police say they have classified the crime as pre-meditated assault.
