Nearby security guards attempted to break up the fight before police arrived, and those believed to be involved fled the scene.

Video footage of the fight shows a group of men punching each other, including to the back of the head.

Following a foot chase, three men were apprehended by the police.

They have been charged with affray over the incident and remain in court.

Paramedics treated Tuala at the scene before he was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital.
