It seems like a case of another night another barney in Byron Bay, with two more incidents reported in the town over the weekend.

A 20-year-old man has been treated for head injuries following a fight between two groups of men, reportedly from Cabarita and Mullumbimby, on Saturday night.

In a separate incident, two men were assaulted on Jonson Street, also on Saturday night, by a 19-year-old man who was part of a group.

The 19-year-old was charged with assault.

The weekend marked the start of Schoolies Week in Byron but police said neither of the incidents was schoolies-related.
