Fights broke out between two gangs in Mandurah after a teenager and three custodial fights broke out at the hospital
A teenager has been taken to hospital and three people are in custody after a frightening broad daylight brawl at a busy shopping centre.
The all-out brawl broke out inside Smart Street Mall in Mandurah, about an hour south of Perth, just before 11.30am on Saturday.
According to the police, there was a clash between two groups known to each other.
Eyewitness Ellie Broughton, who works at the centre, alerted police to the attack and claimed to have seen multiple weapons being used.
‘There was an axe, a knife and a hammer … they obviously set the dog on the man and I think it bit his arm,’ he told Nine News.
‘Mostly what I saw was just the guy with the arm, we were trying to get towels around it and basically get something to stop the bleeding.’
