A woman working in a nearby store, who asked not to be named, said: "I heard some shouting, so I looked out of the window. On the corner, by Aldi, there were two boys shouting at each other.
"They started jumping around like they were in a boxing ring.
"I didn't see much after that because they went behind Aldi. But then they came running back. One disappeared, the other came back with his T-shirt off, holding the back of his neck.
"The next thing I know there's police everywhere."
