Peak hour train commuters watched on horror as a brawl allegedly erupted between youths near a train station in Melbourne’s southeast on Tuesday night.

A Victoria Police spokesman confirmed to Daily Mail Australia it is investigating an incident near Oakleigh train station, where a police officer was allegedly assaulted and a teenage girl was rushed to hospital in a serious condition.

‘A young girl was screaming and crying at the same time,’ one witness told The Herald Sun.

‘She looked pretty bad, there was a big mess on her face, she was all red from the blood. She was screaming, “I’m 15 years old, why did you hit me?” She was bleeding heavily from the face.’

 It’s unknown what sparked the brawl. 

‘A teenage girl was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries,’ a spokesman told Daily Mail Australia.

‘A teenage girl has been arrested in relation to assaulting a policeman during the incident. No other arrests have been made at this stage, a number of people are being interviewed and the investigation is ongoing.’

The alleged incident follows tough new laws that are expected to be passed in Victorian Parliament on Wednesday.

Criminals who threaten or intimidate the families of police, protective service officers and prison guards will face up to a decade behind bars under the proposed new laws, The Age reports.

The bill aims to better protect law enforcement officers after it became an emerging issue for those working in law enforcement.

 ‘This legislation sends the strongest possible message about protecting law enforcement officers from harm,’ Police Minister Lisa Neville told the publication.
