Last weekend there were two incidents at late night fast food outlets that are a concern for police.

The first incident occurred about 1.00am on Saturday at a late night food outlet on Peachtree Road Penrith.

A fight broke out between two groups of people and a male was kicked while he lay on the ground and one of the combatants picked up a chair to use as a weapon but security restrained him before he could use it.

This incident is under investigation.

The second incident occurred around 1.10am on Sunday in a late night Kebab store in High Street Penrith.

Police allege a ‘good samaritan’ intervened in a verbal argument between a male and a female.

As a result a 22-year-old man from Penrith approached the ‘good samaritan’, a 36-year-old from South Penrith.

Police allege that the 22-year-old began to assault the ‘good samaritan’ and he was joined in the attack by his brother (a 26-year-old from Penrith) and another male (24, from Penrith).

Other late night diners helped to break up the fight.

All three males were arrested and taken to Penrith Police station where they were charged with affray and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

They are due to appear at Penrith Local Court on September 3.
