Chaos in Melbourne: Gang of 20 African youths violently rob three men – as a man, 19, is charged with assaulting police and making death threats during all-in brawl on the beach

A gang of approximately 20 African youths allegedly bashed and robbed three men on Saturday night, leaving one victim unconscious.

Dau Mabior, 19, has been charged over his alleged involvement in an all-in brawl on the tourist-heavy foreshore of Melbourne's St Kilda beach.

He is also accused of assaulting officers, making threats to kill and possessing marijuana.

Three men were allegedly ambushed by the riotous group before one was knocked unconscious and robbed.

Two of the victims, aged 24 and 26, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A 20-year-old from Vermont South declined treatment for the minor injuries he sustained during the melee.

Acting Superintendent for Southern Metro police Mark Langhorn told the Herald Sun the violent robbery was connected to a brawl involving more than 100 youths earlier in the night.

'We did have a really heavy police presence down there last night so it's unfortunate these incidents still occur because we felt like we were on top of it,' Acting Supt Langhorn said.

Police confirmed there were a number of arrests in relation to 'anti social behaviour'.

'A number of police units, including the Public Order Response Team and Dog Squad were in attendance, with the crowd dispersing upon arrival.'

'A large number of youths gathered at the foreshore area and officers responded to a number of brawls and drunken behaviour about 11pm.'

'Nine people were arrested in relation to riotous behaviour, possessing drugs and liquor and being drunk in a public place.'

Mr Mabior, who was also charged with breaching bail conditions, fronted court on Sunday, and has been remanded to reappear in court on Tuesday, The Age reported.
