The frightening moment a massive brawl overflowed into a suburban service station has been caught on camera.
The footage shows dozens of men and woman flooding into a service station in Macquarie Fields, western Sydney, at around 11pm on Friday night – just seconds into the video a man is knocked to the ground.
The man is immediately set upon by other men in the crowd – one can be clearly seen punching him as he hits the ground.
Another man looks to be trying to protect the fallen man – but he is out numbered and the violent assault continues.
Police say the brawlers came from an out-of-control party down the road.
The 100 plus party-goers were asked to leave the house, and when they did a fight broke out.
Police can be seen rushing into the centre of the fight – armed with batons and capsicum spray it takes seconds to break up the fight.
The man who had been knocked to the ground is assisted by two men – who help him up under the protection of the police.
A Macquarie Hills resident told 7 News he thought ‘the kids’ involved would ‘witness a murder’ because the brawl was so violent.
No one has been charged over the incident yet but police are expecting to make arrests.
