Oz Police studying tapes of Australian Open violence

Police in Melbourne are reviewing the security footage of a mass brawl between Serbian and Bosnian supporters at the Australian Open.

Melbourne, Jan 24 : Police in Melbourne are reviewing the security footage of a mass brawl between Serbian and Bosnian supporters at the Australian Open.

Three young men will be charged on summons in relation to the fight on Friday afternoon, and another man has been issued with an on-the-spot fine, a police spokeswoman said.

Up to 30 people were ejected from Melbourne Park after the fight in which chairs were hurled following the match between Serbian Novak Djokovic and Bosnian-born American Amer Delic, News.com.au reported.

The brawl started when a tennis ball was thrown between the groups of supporters in Garden Square, but soon escalated with 16 chairs being hurled across the family-friendly area.

The first chair to be hurled hit a female Bosnian supporter in the head, knocking her to the ground. She received first aid at the scene for cuts and bruises to her head.

The clash spilled over outside the venue when punches were thrown between rival fans before police escorted the groups away from Melbourne Park in different directions.

Police are now reviewing footage of the incident and trying to identify those involved and what possible offences have been committed.

That may take some time, the spokeswoman said, because of the number of people involved.

Saturday at the Open remained violence-free, police said.
