Police have vowed to crackdown on a shopping centre dubbed Australia's worst mall.
Market Square Shopping Centre, in Geelong, Victoria, has become a no-go zone for terrified locals.
So-called 'mall rats' are getting drunk, abusing passersby and brawling in broad daylight.
Footage from A Current Affair shows a toothless man wielding a crow bar while shouting outside the shopping centre.
In another scene, men start fighting at lunchtime while a group of girls watch on screaming and shouting.
One man in sunglasses is confronted by programme and asked why he is drinking bourbon in the middle of day.
Former Geelong mayor and media personality Darryn Lyons said there was one solution to end the ongoing mayhem.
'Bring the bulldozers in tomorrow,' he said.
A thug is seen holding a man in a choke-hold position against a wall, before hurling abuse at Mr Lyons for questioning the incident
