After a brawl between teens in a busy shopping center in Melbourne, which left one person fighting for his life, five people, including a 14-year-old boy, have been prosecuted in connection with the incident. On the evening of Wednesday, December 21st, 2022, at approximately 7 o’clock, police say a fight broke out in the food court of the Watergardens Shopping Centre between two adult males and a group of younger people.
Following what the police have referred to as “a serious stabbing,” a 19-year-old man from Sunbury was brought to the hospital in critical condition. A representative for Victoria officers stated that the youths were taken into custody due to the prompt actions of local officers and PSOs outside of the Watergardens Train Station a short while later.
The retail center at Taylors Lakes, which is located northwest of the Melbourne CBD, is home to hundreds of different stores and sees an increase in foot traffic in the weeks leading up to Christmas. On Wednesday evening, large sections of the food court were blocked off with police tape. Officers were seen arresting five people. Later, a 14-year-old St Albans resident was charged with affray and wilfully causing serious injury.
