Australian media is reporting shocking cases of two separate incidents of mass violent acts involving South Sudanese Australian gangs in Melbourne, Victoria and Sydney, New South Wales.

On Saturday, a group of about 30 “men of African descent” fought outside a theatre in Sydney according to NSW Police. The police refused to say whether those involved in violence were South Sudanese but most Australian media houses have been identifying them as mostly South Sudanese.

On the same night in Melbourne, Victoria a gang of mostly South Sudanese known as Apex according to some Australian media outlets fought with a gang of Pacific Islanders, Islanders 23, while chanting, “fuck the police.” The violence broke out in Federation Square during a family event in Melbourne forcing terrified innocent bystanders to flee.

Victoria Police said in a statement they are investigating.
