According to the police, who were alerted to the dispute at 10.44pm, the brawl was already over by the time officers arrived at the scene. When the 29-year-old saw the police, he tried to flee and officers gave chase. The man was finally arrested after he unsuccessfully tried to hit an officer with a glass bottle, but was unsuccessful.
It remains unclear what caused the dispute. Police investigations are ongoing.
