He is expected to be charged on summons with criminal damage, assault and using a false document.

The men were walking through the car park on Railway Grove after leaving a nearby hotel. They became involved in an altercation with a group of men about 3am. Both were allegedly punched and knocked to the ground before bystanders intervened. The group then drove off.

The 20-year-old Mount Martha man and a 17-year-old man from Mornington were both taken to hospital with non-life threatening head injuries.

A Lyndhurst man, 28, allegedly involved in the incident in the Centro car park handed himself in to police next day and was interviewed and released.
