Two of the men left the bar and were involved in a further disturbance, around 1am, near the corner of Lonsdale and Elouera Streets, resulting in a woman and man being assaulted.

The men were harassing the woman after she asked one of them about his injured leg, as he was wearing a leg brace. Her partner attempted to stop the harassment however was punched repeatedly by the man in the leg brace.
