Teens charged in Bellbird Park burger brawl

TERRIFIED McDonald's staff locked the doors on a group of 30 teenagers after police shut down a nearby house party, sparking a brawl with police.

When the teenagers couldn't get in at 11.30pm for a burger and fries, they started hammering on the glass doors at the Bellbird Park outlet, terrifying staff.

All available police were dispatched to the incident. About 20 crews including CIB, general duty police, supervisors, dog squad and rail squad raced to the scene.

Police allege the group turned on them, throwing bricks and rocks and anything they could find.

It is alleged that a police vehicle was damaged and an officer was injured as the incident escalated.

"A number of the group were chased by police, and during a foot pursuit, an officer struck a wire fence and cut his leg and injured his elbow. He was transported to hospital for treatment for his injuries," a police spokeswoman said.

A number of men and a boy were arrested and charged for public nuisance and good order offences.

A McDonald's spokesman said their crew handled the issue well and they were thankful there were no injuries to any staff.

A nearby resident said the fast food outlet was the target of another late night attack a month ago when a group of youths believed to have come from a nearby out of control house party congregated to throw objects at cars going through the drive-through.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
