One man has been arrested after four men, from the Rebels and the Descendants Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs, became involved in a fight at the Orientai Restaurant on North East Rd, Holden Hill.
Police have seized CCTV footage of the fight, which occurred about 7.30pm on Sunday, December 23. It shows frightened diners grabbing their children and running for cover as the fight escalates.
Crime Gangs Taskforce Detective Superintendent John De Candia said one of the men - believed to be from the Rebels - was seated at a table near a group of three men, one of whom was wearing a Descendants t-shirt.
"This was not a nightclub where you might expect this sort of incident to occur," said Supt De Candia
"They have no regard...in relation to where they engage in their violent conduct and it certainly places the community at risk.
"There were 25 to 30 people in the restaurant at the time, these were families who were out enjoying each others' company prior to Christmas."
Supt De Candia said there may have been a verbal altercation before the fight but it was not believed to have been part of an on going dispute.
Police spoke with witnesses on the night of the incident but would like any further witnesses who have not been spoken to, to come forward.
The alleged Rebels gang member - a 29-year-old Redwood Park man - was charged with affray and issued with a barring order, preventing him from entering licensed premises for 12 months.
He is expected to appear in the Holden Hill Magistrates Court on March 6.
