They were investigating allegations that a man, in his fifties, had been assaulted and the tyres on a Vauxhall Vectra had been slashed.
Following a widespread hunt by police across the town five people were arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including assault, public order offences and criminal damage. They remain in custody at Exeter Police Station.
