The fight is believed to have taken place on Friday evening at Butler Grove (pictured), off Ribblesdale Avenue, Wyndham Vale, in Melbourne’s southwest.

A local resident said she heard “men shouting” outside her home and a car speeding away screaming.
Another woman, Tiffany, said she found Adam unconscious near her driveway.
A “broken” mother from Wyndham Vale, whose own son was Adam’s best friend, described him as “such a funny and caring young man”.
‘(I) can’t believe you’re gone Adam. I loved you as if you were my own son. You have always been my son’s best friend.
She shared a hashtag #justiceforadam, in two publications.
A friend of Adam’s repeated the reference to “justice” being served.
“Rest in peace brother, I’m sorry I couldn’t save you, all I could do was just hold you, you will get justice for this,” he wrote.
