My family and I were just completing our grocery shop at Jamison this afternoon, when in the middle of the newly refurbished mall a brawl broke out. It seems (from our distanced view) a couple of blokes had a disagreement out the front of Aldi, which became a bit heated and resulted in the younger guy bottling the older guy. Things stepped up from there, with a few mates from either side running in to help; a checkout chick from Coles running in, as it was her dad who was bottled; Aldi & Coles staff stepping in to break things up; and no real form of mall security. The guy was then kicked and hit while on the ground by the main offender. A number of mobiles were pulled out by customers in the area – half I expect were calling the police, while the other half filmed the event for YouTube.
The end result was a puddle of blood, glass, and grog left on the floor in the middle of the newly laid tiles; a couple of police cars outside; a guy with a cold compress on his head and a bit of blood all over; and a guy in cuffs on the curb.
So it’s a new look Jamo, but the customers are still the same.
