A pub brawl allegedly involving the use of a bar stool and smashed glasses forced Moama’s Border Inn Hotel to close early on Thursday night.
Deniliquin local area commander Superintendent Craig Jackson said a Diamond Creek man, 28, and another man from Moama, 25, were in the bar area of the hotel at about 9.45pm.
He said there was a verbal altercation between the two, which then became a fight.
Superintendent Jackson said the fight was stopped by several patrons, but then broke out again shortly afterwards.
He said the Moama man allegedly picked up a bar stool and swung at the Diamond Creek man, also hitting a 60-year-old Moama man.
He said the younger Moama man allegedly picked up two glasses, smashed them on the bar and then attacked the Diamond Creek man, causing deep cuts to his arms.
Superintendent Jackson said the 25-year-old then left the area, and the injured man and other patrons tried to find him.
Police arrived a short time later, declared the bar a crime scene and the bar was closed.
Police spoke to the alleged victims before they were taken by ambulance to the Echuca hospital.
The 60-year-old had minor chest injuries.
Police located the younger Moama man and spoke to him before he was taken to hospital by a friend for his own injuries.
Superintendent Jackson said inquiries were still being made.
