A bystander says they were having a quiet meal when they heard shouting and punching.
"There were two guys fighting another guy," says the bystander. "They punched him so he was unconscious and then they gapped it, running down the street. A couple of people started to chase them but didn't catch up.
"When the ambulance came he was conscious again and the ambulance people treated him."
