Echuca police are disappointed with the large amount of alcohol-fuelled violence in the town on Saturday night.
Leading Senior Constable Tamara McKenzie said police officers were kept busy most of the night attending pubs, clubs, hotels and bars around town.
‘‘There was quite a large volume of people at all licensed premises and a lot of alcohol-fuelled altercations,’’ Sen. Constable McKenzie said.
‘‘It was really disappointing, the behaviour.’’
She said the anti-social behaviour was coming from locals and tourists, who seemed to be ‘‘clashing’’.
Although there was only one arrest, Sen. Constable McKenzie said police had to intervene on many occasions to alleviate escalating violence.
