The 27-year-old will face court on Thursday charged over the alleged assault, which left an 18-year-old man with a broken nose and another with bruising to his head in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A witness used a mobile phone to filmed the alleged attack, near Sting Bar and just across the road from Cronulla Police Station on The Kingsway, about 1.40am on Sunday. That footage was later uploaded to social media, police say.
The footage shows two teenagers attempting to run away from an older man, as the person filming pleads: “Stop, stop!”
The older man is shown in the footage punching one of the teenagers to the head, before one of the teenagers falls to the ground. The older man, who has taken off his shirt, is then shown in the footage yelling as he stands over the teenager on the ground.
Police said both 18-year-olds reported the assault to Cronulla Police Station on Monday, and detectives launched an investigation.
One of the teenagers had suffered a broken nose and facial injuries, while the other sustained bruising to the back of his head, police said.
On Wednesday afternoon, a 27-year-old man was arrested at Miranda Police Station and charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company; recklessly causing grievous bodily harm in company; two counts of common assault; and affray.
He was refused police bail and is due to appear in Sutherland Local Court on Thursday.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident. */]]>
