A manhunt is under way for nine men involved in a bar fight that spilled onto the street early on Saturday morning in Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon.

The incident started with infighting among a dozen Nepali at a bar on Hart Avenue at 2am, Sing Tao Daily reported. The men, reportedly drunken, were seen throwing chairs and roll-up stand banners in the fight, according to a video footage uploaded by Lam King-fui in a Facebook group. 

A 49-year-old male security guard was beaten by some Nepali men who wanted to enter a shopping mall. Four European men tried to calm everybody down, but triggered even more fighting. A European man was hit by a chair, while a Nepali fell on the floor when he was trying to kick someone.

Several of the Nepali men involved in the fight tried to take a taxi on Mody Road, but they were arrested by the police as they had a quarrel with the driver. Police are now looking for five Nepali and four European men involved in an unlawful fight in a public place, Apple Daily reported.

Media reports did not disclose the nationality of the four European men.
