Police have arrested ten people for their involvement in a brawl at Bugis Street last Tuesday (June 7).

A police spokesperson told AsiaOne that the police first received a call at about 10.20pm alerting them to the incident on June 7.

The police initially arrested nine people for unlawful assembly, but one more man was later arrested, making the total number of arrests 10.

The ages of those involved are not known.

A video of the incident was also uploaded on a Facebook page called 'SG HardTruth Community' on Monday (June 13).

In the four-minute long video, a group of people can be seen raining punches on each other and shouting at the same time.

Halfway into the video, some men clad in blue intervene and try to stop the fight.

The Straits Times reported that there were both men and women among those arrested.

According to the police spokesperson, the fight was the result of an escalation of disputes and "growing resentment" between two stallholders.

Police investigation is ongoing.
