A group of six people were filmed in a wild brawl at a Gloria Jeans inside a north Melbourne shopping centre yesterday, in a vicious fight reportedly sparked over a “thrown drink”.
Video of the brawl shows multiple men throwing cafe tables and chairs directly at one another at the Gloria Jeans in Broadmeadows Central yesterday. The men had gathered together just hours before the suburb was locked down in response to a spike in coronavirus cases in the state.
According to reports, detectives from the Hume Crime Investigation Unit believe the brawl was sparked by a drink being thrown inside the cafe just after 4pm.
Two men were hospitalised following the brawl after receiving treatment at the scene by paramedics.
Those injured included a male in his late teens and another man in his 20s who suffered minor injuries. They were both taken to Sunshine Hospital in a stable condition.
No one was arrested in connection with the brawl. The investigation is ongoing.
