Police received reports of a huge fight in Hamilton Hill at around 10pm on Saturday night, with people claiming youths were smashing cars and buildings.

They arrived to find a fracas of more than 50 young adults after a party spilled out onto Winfield Street.

The teenagers had smashed the windows of resident’s cars and houses with bottles and other objects.

Several teams of police and dog squad units were required to disperse the melee.

‘No arrests were made at the time, investigations are continuing into the damaged vehicle and property,’ a police spokesman said.

Less than an hour later officers were required to handle another party across the city, with neighbours claiming they were being threatened and one teenager reportedly had a knife.

A fight had broken out in the streets involving several youths who were attending a party in Ballajura.

Officers arrived just after 11pm to find a trail of destruction including smashed windows and slashed tyres.

Neighbours say teens had climbed into their backyards and threatened them when they were told to leave. Others say they saw one young man carrying a blade and saw another boy knocked unconscious.

Upon their arrival, police were attacked by youths throwing bottles and other projectiles, prompting them to retreat and call for backup.

Several other units attended, including canine teams and even a police helicopter. An 18-year-old man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Anyone with any information on either incident is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
