Police seized a sword after a brawl in Koondoola last night which left one man in hospital.

Officers were called to Swincer Way just after 9pm when a fight broke out between two groups of youths and were forced to block off the street.

Inspector Ian Clarke said some of the men were holding bats, poles and even a sword.

It was unclear if the sword was used in the fight.

Five people were hurt in the brawl but all received only minor injuries.

A man was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with head injuries but the other injured people refused medical attention.
