An irate shopper and a security guard have been caught in a vicious brawl inside a Coles supermarket.
Security cameras captured the pair fighting at the self-service checkout of a Coles in Prahran, southeast Melbourne, last month.
The security guard can be seen speaking with a male customer in a hoody before the shopper turns around and lashes out with a punch.
The two men trade blows as horrified customers watch on.
At one point, the guard manages to grab hold of the customer, lift him up in the air and slam him onto the floor.

The shopper then tries to get up and attack the guard again as the fracas continued.
But the guard slaps the man in the face after he gets up, which stops the brawl momentarily.
It soon erupts again when the customer lunges forward and tries to punch the guard in the face.
The two men grab onto each other before the guard pushes the shopper onto the baggage area of one checkout.
A store manager then steps in and breaks up the fight.

The security guard works for contractor MA Services Group, who didn’t respond to enquiries.
Coles said a review was launched into the matter and has since been resolved.
‘(It) was reported immediately and reviewed accordingly with our security service provider,’ a spokesperson told 7News.
‘Coles is satisfied with the outcome of that review.’
Coles did not comment on the behaviour of the security guard or customer.
