An investigation is under way after a wild brawl at the Sydney Royal Easter Show on Monday night left two teenagers with lacerations to their legs and one of them in hospital.
Officers from Auburn Police Area Command were called to the show’s carnival area at about 9.20pm on the final night of the show after reports of two large groups of people fighting.
On arrival officers separated the groups before many left the area and dispersed back into the show crowd.
Footage obtained by 2GB shows police attempting to intervene in one fight between a group of girls.
Another video, circulating on Instagram, shows a group of teenage boys fighting before running away along the Easter Show‘s promenade.
A large group of teenage boys chased after the fighting group, laughing and holding their phones out filming.
An 18-year-old man presented to police with a laceration to his shin. He was treated at the scene before being taken to Concord Hospital for further treatment.
A second male, aged 17, was treated by first-aid providers for lacerations to his lower legs. He declined to be taken to hospital.
The two males did not provide statements to police, and an investigation is now under way.
