Six people – five men aged in their early 20s and a 28-year-old woman – were arrested nearby.

They have all since been charged with one count each of aggravated affray and have been released on bail to appear in court in November.

The second incident occurred at the intersection of Hindley and Morphett Streets just after 2am.

Police said a 19-year-old man sustained life-threatening head injuries after he was allegedly bashed by a group of men.

The man was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital where he remains today, in a critical condition.

A 21-year-old man was arrested and has since been charged with aggravated assault causing serious harm.

He will spend the rest of the weekend locked up ahead of his court appearance on Monday.

Investigations are continuing, and police have not ruled out further arrests.
