Seven charged over brawl at kid's birthday party

SEVEN people have been charged following a children's birthday party brawl at a Western Sydney play centre last month.

Police executed search warrants at several south-western Sydney properties early on Tuesday.

Mobile phone footage of the brawl on June 20 showed a chaotic scene as a man was savagely attacked on the ground as upset children hid.

Three fathers were later taken to hospital with injuries.

"The behaviour we saw in the play centre was something I cannot understand," Superintendent Peter Lennon said.

"There are a number of children that can be seen in the footage who are extremely upset and crying."
