Police have charged a group of males with affray over a brawl at a train station in Melbourne's City Loop a month ago.
A police spokesman confirmed the suspects, who handed themselves in this morning, had been charged over the melee, which left one man in hospital and up to five others injured.
The men fronted police less than 24 hours after CCTV footage of the alleged bashing, which occurred at Parliament Station on June 19, was released.
A police spokeswoman said seven men would appear in court on September 10, with another to two to face a Childrens' Court at a later date.
Those charged include a 21-year-old from Glen Waverley, two 20-year-olds from Hampton Park and Glen Waverley, two 19-year-olds from Clarinda and East Bentleigh, a 17-year-old from Clayton and two 16-year-olds from East Malvern and Clayton.
In the security footage of the alleged three-minute attack, one man can be seen wielding a plastic bollard, while others attack the victim on a station escalator.
Speaking yesterday, Detective Leading Senior Constable Mark Sontag said the victim, from Wonga Park in Melbourne's east, was "very lucky" not to have been more seriously injured in the attack.
The man was released from hospital that night with stitches to his head and a large graze caused by the teeth on the escalator belt.
