A search is underway for the men involved in a "disgraceful" brawl that erupted inside a Melbourne train carriage over the controversial bicycle share scheme oBike.
Footage of the incident, believed to have taken place on Melbourne's Hurstbridge line at the weekend, shows a middle-aged, bald man verbally abusing the yellow bike users, telling them to get off the train due to safety risks posed by the bicycles.
The video shows one of the oBike riders exchanging words with the man before flinging his share bike to the ground and approaching the man, who then throws multiple punches which appear to connect with the rider's head.
Passengers then step in to break up the scuffle.
"Disrespectful f****** people," the video, which has so far gained 9000 views, shows the bald man yelling afterward.
Victoria Police and Metro Trains are both investigating the incident and pursuing the men involved.
"While incidents like this are rare, the behaviour depicted in this video is disgraceful and unacceptable," Metro spokeswoman Sammie Black said in a statement on Monday.
"We urge anyone that witnesses dangerous, illegal or antisocial behaviour to report the incident by pressing the emergency button in trains and on platforms or by contacting triple zero."
Public Transport Victoria permits push bikes on metropolitan trains.
