Windows smashed in street brawl

POLICE are investigating an alleged assault of a person in the Norman Gardens area following reports a group of about 10 people, wielding pick handles and fence palings, had attacked a home.

Several police units converged on Bulman St about 6.20pm on Monday following several triple-0 calls about an armed group of people walking down the street.

Senior Sergeant Tom Nelson of Rockhampton police said yesterday police were still speaking to witnesses.

"A couple of people were fighting in the street and another group of people came in to intervene," Snr Sgt Nelson said.

"The people who started the fight then turned on those who intervened and it escalated from there but only lasted a short while."

A window of a home and a car window were smashed by the group before they dispersed.

Police said its Child Protection Investigation Unit were investigating claims of an assault against a child.

A police spokesperson said triple-0 callers told the operator some were armed with sticks, cricket bats and a pickaxe.

The group of juveniles involved in the incident were between 15 and 18years, Snr Sgt Nelson said.

It's not the first incident in Bulman St.

Last year, The Morning Bulletin reported that residents in the street said they were sick of the drugs, violence, and speeding cars in the street.

Some were scared to leave their homes and wouldn't let their children play outside.

No one has yet been charged.
