Police were forced to break up a fight between three men at Jack Evans Boat Harbour on Saturday night (May 20) after they received calls from distressed members of the public who witnessed it.

When they arrived at the Boundary Street, Tweed Heads, park about 9.30pm police reported seeing two men punching and kicking another man in the face and body while he was on the ground.

Inspector Bobbie Cullen said the man who was being assaulted had in fact started the fight by ‘punching one of the other males numerous times before he and his friend took it into their own hands and launched the assault that they witnessed.’

The three men were separated and arrested. They were taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where they were treated for their injuries and charged with affray.

At the time of the assault there were numerous members of the public in the vicinity who were quiet distressed by what they saw.

Police will be seeking a place restriction order to prevent the three men returning to the area.

They will appear in the Tweed Heads Local Court on June 5.
