Dean Kozanic/StuffPolice were called to an assault involving gang members, which started at a Burger King car park in Lincoln Rd, Christchurch, about 5.20pm on Sunday.

A man who witnessed a brawl between rival gangs says a gang of skinheads drove into a car with Mongrel Mob members inside.

Police were called to an assault involving gang members, which started at a Burger King car park in Lincoln Rd, Christchurch, about 5.20pm on Sunday, a spokeswoman said.

A man, who Stuff has agreed not to name, was driving home after work when he saw two men running across the road with a dog.

He initially thought the men – one a skinhead, the other a Mongrel Mob member – were trying to cross the road together.

“I slowed down and the guy in front fell down and kicked out at the dog, and then the Mongrel Mob member started laying into him in the middle of the road.”

Seconds later another skinhead came running down Lincoln Rd and joined the fight before a Mongrel Mob member jumped out of a car and got involved.

“There was a lot of fighting going on and one of the skinheads was making a stabbing motion with his right hand and saying ‘hit him, hit him, get him’ and then something about a bottle, and then I noticed that there was empty wine bottles, and he was trying to smash the Mongrel Mob guy over the head.”

One of the Mongrel Mob members jumped into the back seat of his car and barked.

Moments later a blue car came out of a side street and “deliberately rammed” the Mongrel Mob car at a speed of about 40kmh.

The last Mongrel Mob member got into the car and they took off.

“The two skinheads just checked if each other was OK, the blue car pulled up to where the Mob car was, and they hopped in and just drove off.

“There was so much broken glass,” the man said.

The witness described the brawl as “scary and surreal”.

No-one appeared to be seriously injured but the blue car was “a bit smashed up”.

A police spokeswoman said officers spoke to one of the groups, who did not wish to make a formal complaint.

No injuries were reported, she said.
