One man was arrested and a teen taken to hospital after a brawl at Cromer.

Just after 12.45am yesterday morning (Sunday, 31 July) emergency services received multiple Triple Zero (000) calls from concerned residents, following a disturbance at a party being held at a residence at Badcoe Road, Cromer.

Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command and NSW Ambulance intensive care paramedics responded to a report of a group of up to 15 people engaged in a ferocious fight.

When police officers arrived at the scene, they found a 16-year-old teenage male suffering a laceration to his head after allegedly being assaulted. A 17-year-old teenage female and two others were also assessed by NSW Ambulance paramedics.

The 16-year-old male was transported by road ambulance to Northern Beaches Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment but the 17-year-old female, who paramedics suspected had a fractured nose, refused to be taken to hospital.

NSW Police conducted inquiries at the scene and a 20-year-old man was arrested and taken to Manly Police Station where he was charged with affray and reckless wounding. He was granted conditional bail and will appear at Manly Local Court on Wednesday, 07 September 2022.

Later in the morning (Sunday, 31 July), the 17-year-old female contacted NSW Ambulance again, complaining of having suffered a seizure. She was assessed by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment.

With a number of people allegedly involved in the brawl, NSW Police have confirmed that inquiries into the incident are ongoing.
