UPDATE: TWO men have been charged with public nuisance offences after a brawl broke out in Coronation Park near the Stephen St Store.

The 23-year-old and a 20-year-old were arrested yesterday afternoon.

Police responded to various calls to the location at approximately 3.30pm.

Some people reported up to 50 people were in the area at the time of the altercation.

Toowoomba police officer Peter Hudson said some people involved in the incident were affected by alcohol.

"With the hot weather, dehydration doesn't help and multiples the effects (of alcohol)," Sergeant Hudson said.

Sergeant Hudson said the issue was resolved late yesterday afternoon.

The two men were expected to be released from the Toowoomba watch house last night and will appear in court at a later date.
