Chaos erupted at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday evening [February 13] when a fight broke out in front of the harbour outside the popular shopping centre.

In videos circulating on social media, a large group of people are seen attempting to attack each other near the flag pole outside the main harbour-facing entrance of the shopping centre.

In the video, a man can be seen holding a sharp object over another as he falls over one of the benches. Commentators on the video reference that the man possibly stabbed the other. The V&A Waterfront confirmed on Twitter that “one youngster being stabbed in the back. Our security personnel were on the scene to disperse the group & ER24 were called to attend to the victim. He was then released to his family who came to fetch him.”

The police have no record of the incident, as no charge was brought to them.

“At this point, neither the victim nor relatives have laid a charge with the police which would allow us to assist the police in identifying & apprehending the person or people involved. We would encourage them to do so. No other casualties have been reported,” said the V&A Waterfront on Twitter.

“The V&A manages a comprehensive security operation with security personnel, armed response, CCTV & other measures. We’ve immediately increased personnel on the weekend to continue to monitor the situation but believe it to be an isolated incident,” it said.
