At around 9.45pm on Sunday 25 September 2022, two groups of people who were involved in an altercation with each other inside a licenced venue on Beaufort Street in Highgate were ejected. As the victim was walking away from the venue a man from the earlier altercation ran at the victim and punched the victim to the side of the head causing the victim to fall into the roadway striking his head on the front of a taxi pulling up.
