This is not the first time Stomp has reported on a fight breaking out at the coffee shop located at 34 Upper Cross Street.

Earlier in February, a 63-year-old man was arrested after a violent altercation with a 67-year-old man. Both were taken to hospital.

In August last year, two men, aged 59 and 67, were arrested after throwing punches at each other. Less than three weeks later, a 64-year-old man was arrested for affray following a fight.
