The four men are believed to have gone to Hopscotch Bar on Saturday evening where they were involved in a "disturbance", police said.

Two of the men left the bar, but at about 1am, they were involved in an alleged assault near the corner of Lonsdale and Elouera Streets where a man and a woman were allegedly assaulted.
