The Prussians sent 6,000 men, led by general Wedel to protect Berlin. Wedel attacked aggressively and let his cavalry attack a Swedish force of some 600 men at Tornow. The Swedes were fighting bravely, and fought off six assaults, but the majority of the Swedish cavalry was lost, and the Swedish infantry had to retreat before the stronger Prussian forces.
The Prussian-Swedish battles continued at the Battle of Fehrbellin (1758) on 28 September.
