When a Muslim wedding celebration descends into chaos, police are called, and are quickly surrounded by an unruly crowd of Muslim wedding guests who blocked the road and threatened the two officers. The police car turns on the sirens as the group circled the vehicle to prevent it from moving down the road. Outnumbered, the police made a hasty retreat, failing to arrest any of the rioters.

A man, who appears be dressed in his wedding suit, then presses half his body onto the bonnet and pounds the car with his fists. There are others dressed for a formal occasion – with some combining formal clothes with sneakers and sunglasses.
The police car then began to reverse away from the group, with the man dressed in a suit chasing after the vehicle as if to shoo it away. The group cheered as one man screamed: ‘What you gonna do now you f**king pigs?’
Police have launched a manhunt for the men captured in the video, which was proudly posted on social media. Police initially received reports of dangerous and erratic motorbike driving in the Dallas area.
Patrol units were dispersed to the area and located vehicles matching the earlier description of those involved in the Dallas incident in Glenroy. It was then that tensions quickly escalated.
‘A single police unit approached these vehicles and witnessed three motorbikes being ridden erratically before they were rushed by a group of people,’ police said. ‘The group became increasingly aggressive and officers decided to reverse away for the safety of the group and themselves.’
