It’s alleged a fight broke out among a group of five men, all known to each other, when a 28-year-old struck a 25-year-old with a glass.

A second 25-year-old man was then punched when he tried to intervene.


Emergency services took the 25-year-old who was glassed to Prince of Wales Hospital and treated the other man on the scene, who sustained minor swelling.

Soon after a 28-year-old man was arrested after he attended Prince of Wales Hospital for treatment to a hand injury.

He remains under police guard and inquiries are ongoing.
