A Queens Park teenager says she regrets the trouble caused after her birthday party got out of control and dozens of drunken revellers brawled in the street, pelted police with bottles, struck a neighbour with a metal pole and smashed car windows.

Mary Achiro, 15, yesterday admitted she needed to apologise but said she had been unaware of the extent of the problems caused by inviting 200 people via Facebook to an all-day gathering at her family's Longhurst Way home.

Frightened neighbours called triple-0 about 8.45pm when fights broke out in the street and police declared the 15th birthday party an out-of-control gathering.

Riot squad officers and police on horses and with dogs were called as back-up after bottles were thrown at officers.

Seconds before police arrived, 23-year-old Ashley Celiker was attacked when he told fighting revellers to move off his father's property, which is next to the party house.

"Before you know it I was hit in the back with a metal pole and . . . punched in the face . . . it's ludicrous," he said.

Mr Celiker was unsure who hit him, saying there were people everywhere and it happened quickly.

He admitted he might have been silly to tell the violent partygoers to keep away but they had three little boys, the youngest just seven months old, in their house.

Neighbours praised the police response and claimed the violence had been worrying.

One mother said she had gone outside when she heard all the noise. A partygoer standing in her front yard said he needed a weapon and asked her for a pole or knife.

Fed-up residents said it was about the third time this year a big party had been held at the house, where seven people live.

A back window of Anthony Jalocon's car was smashed after revellers were herded past the verge where it was parked.

He wants the party hosts to pay for the damage.

"I'm very disappointed and stressed, every day I use this car (for work)," he said.

"I do not know what they're thinking of when they do this, or maybe they're doing this just for fun, it's not good."

Police issued several move-on notices and a 19-year-old Kelmscott man will be summonsed for disorderly conduct.

'I was hit in the back with a metal pole and punched . . . it's ludicrous.'"
