The witness, who did not wish to be identified, said the pair fought for several minutes, ”running at each other like rams butting heads”.
It is understood the two were separated by shoppers.
The witness said one shouted, ”You’re dead, I’m going to kill you”, and the other ran off in the direction of the boarded-up Jamison Tavern.
Fifteen minutes later, the building was on fire.
