Two charged over Boxing Day assault posted online

TWO men have been charged with assault and affray in relation to a Boxing Day fracas captured on film and published on the internet.

In the five-minute clip, shot on the Frankston Line, a man can be seen getting punched in the face and falling backwards as the train approaches what appears to be Caulfield station.

At the start of the video, a man is heard saying, ‘‘Is anyone gonna f**king help me or what?’’ before a man receives a powerful blow to the face.

When the train pulls into the station, the men spill onto the platform, before resuming their fight as the train starts moving again.

A man can be heard saying, ‘‘Get away from me ... I’m bleeding already.’’

A woman commuter can be seen looking on in alarm.

At the height of the fracas, a bystander can be heard pleading, ‘‘Guys, please stop it. Guys, please, please, guys. Guys, please. It’s enough, it’s enough, it’s enough, it’s enough. Guys, it’s enough.’’

A man dressed in dark jeans and a black tee-shirt falls to the floor, between four seats, before crawling away barefoot.

Following our report, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said that a Chelsea man, 29, and an Edens Landing man, 31, had been charged with serious assault and affray.

They have been bailed to appear at Moorabbin Justice Centre on February 12.
