A witness claimed there was a mass brawl between a group of men in the street. 

He said a group of “10 to 15” of them armed with batons then smashed their way in through the back door of a terrified family’s home.

After stealing the keys to their car they tried to drive off but then a 4x4 vehicle turned up and started ramming several vehicles parked in the street. 

Another fight then ensued which ended up with one man allegedly having half his ear half bitten off.

“The mum and her child, who must have only been about three or four-years-old, came running out of the house screaming. They were hysterical, as you would be. 

“Then as the gang tried to get away in their car this 4x4 turned up and started going into the parked vehicles. There was smoke coming out of some of them. 

“There was this guy on the street with part of his ear missing, he had blood all over him. 

"!’m not sure how it is all connected but it was very scary.”
