ACT Policing is seeking to identify three men involved in a disturbance in the food court in Belconnen Mall tonight (Monday, January 2).
Police were called to the location around 6.35pm after witnesses reported a fight between two groups of men, one group aged in their late teens and another in their mid-20s.
One 18-year-old man is suspected to have produced a knife in the incident but suffered a self-inflicted wound to his hand. Three other teens received minor injuries.
Police arrived within three minutes and took the 18-year-old man into custody. He and another 18-year-old will be charged with weapons offences and are expected to be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.
