Good Samaritan viciously bashed on Hindley St

A MAN has allegedly been viciously attacked while attempting to break up an argument on Hindley St.

The good Samaritan reportedly tried to intervene in a verbal stoush between a man and woman on the notorious party street just after 11.30pm on Saturday. However, the duo allegedly turned on him.

Video footage of the incident was uploaded to social media shortly after the attack.

It showed a man punching another man several times, prompting him to fall to the footpath. A woman can then be seen kicking the man while he was on the ground.

The victim was taken to hospital with a cut to his eye and facial swelling.

A 26-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man, both from Holden Hill, were charged with aggravated assault causing harm.

The pair have been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court in December.

Another video from Saturday night, allegedly showing the same woman throwing several punches through a taxi window, was also posted on social media.

The incident occurred just weeks after another serious assault on Hindley St left a young man fighting for life in hospital.

A 19-year-old Morphett Vale man sustained life-threatening head injuries in a fight involving a group of men at the intersection of Hindley and Morphett streets just after 2am on Sunday, September 23.

He was rushed to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in a critical condition and a 21-year-old Morphett Vale man was charged with aggravated assault causing serious harm. Police have not ruled out further arrests.

The fight prompted calls from partygoers that more needed to be done to curb violence on the party strip.

The assault happened at the same intersection where Jack Hanley, 22, of Glandore, died after a melee broke out between more than a dozen people in the early hours of December 10, 2017.

Police arrested Reece Andrew Watherston, 21, over that incident and charged him with manslaughter.

Watherston appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court earlier this month and pleaded not guilty to the charge.

He was remanded on continuing bail and will appear in the Supreme Court next month when a trial date is expected to be set.
