The fight began inside the home and spilled out onto the street where it grew more violent. 

Shortly after, carloads of young men arrived with a baseball bat, a golf club and wooden and metal poles to join the brawl.   

Neighbours Gayle and Wayne Jamieson were told by two girls next door that the party would be noisy but it would be over by 10pm. 

‘The next minute it was turmoil,’ Wayne told the Daily Telegraph.  

Gayle felt sorry for the ‘poor family’ of the man who was died in the fight.  

‘He has come to a party to celebrate and it’s ended like this,’ she said.   

Police from the Public Order and Riot Squad, the Dog Unit and Rescue Squad were called to break up the argument. 

A crime scene remains in place on Chester Road between Percy Street and Gertrude Avenue, and the four men are believed to still be in custody.
