She said there was always at least one police car in the area from the afternoon onwards.

"It didn’t used to be that bad," she said.

The woman said she doesn’t park in the underground carpark if she’s working late to avoid young people congregating there.

A worker at one of the many kiosks said the centre appeared to have a ‘‘treacherous’’ reputation.

‘‘If I tell people I work at Westfield Fountain Gate shopping centre they sort of scoff and say ‘that must be fun’,’’ the man said.

He claimed to have seen people tackled and cuffed by police in front of his store, and fights on the escalators directly across from him in his six months working there.

But there’s generally a high police presence to deal with any issue. ‘‘There’s always something going on," he said.

‘‘Rarely a day goes pass where you don’t see something.

‘‘It’s interesting enough, you get a good front row seat.’’

But he said it’s ‘‘not a shopping centre you feel that relaxed in’’.

The kiosk store had high security, unlike the same franchise kiosk stores elsewhere, and had been targeted in brazen thefts.

Another worker at a separate kiosk store said it had been broken into twice in about a year at night, with cash stolen but the thieves never caught.

Other retail workers who spoke to The Age said there were aware of the reputation but rarely saw problems themselves.

Witnesses and anyone with information relating to the identity of the people involved in Tuesday's fight are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
