One of the bouncers was taken to hospital with serious chest wounds and two others received wounds to their arms.

Police said three men were arrested at the scene.

The incident occurred after the bouncers had stopped one man over the alleged theft of a woman's handbag, and his friends got involved in the confrontation, police said.
