A birthday party involving a group of 14-year-olds in Perth, Australia got out of control on Saturday, forcing neighbours to call riot police to restore order.
According to Western Australia Police and witnesses at the scene, about 20 teenagers attracted undue attention with their disorderly and wild behaviour that spilled out onto the streets at around 11pm.
The teenagers, most of who were drunk, were reported to have been fighting at the party, which was held in a suburb in Yangepub in southern Perth. An estimated 200 people attended the birthday party, which appeared to have been well organised complete with entry fees.
When the police arrived at the scene, a teenager within the group threw a bottle at a police officer, injuring him on the head. The officer had to receive treatment at a nearby hospital for the injury, which was however reported as "not serious."
Video footage taken at the scene showed police officers in full riot gear and walking towards the residence where the party was being held. There were also police cars, a riot bus, and an ambulance parked along the street.
A neighbour who allowed her teenage daughter to attend the party vowed to never allow it again, writing on Facebook that the teenagers' drunken actions were "disgusting and shocking." She also indicated that there were some adults at the same party.
Police said they took the decision to close the party due to concerns it would descend into more chaos. No further disturbances were reported once the teenagers were dispersed.
