TEENS hurled bottles from a balcony and brawled in a quiet suburban street during wild Australia Day celebrations while their parents were away.
Police tried to pounce on the out-of-control young revellers who overtook a section of a Hawthorn East neighbourhood.
But the teenagers fled the officers, running down Victoria Rd before they could be caught.
About 60 people had gathered at a teen’s home while their parents were away.

Witnesses say partygoers were throwing objects, screaming and wrestling in the street and pushing shopping trolleys into parked cars.
Alarmed neighbours phoned police after hearing commotion from a two-storey home, where it’s believed the party had started about 10am.
Groups of people had poured into the property after arriving at nearby Auburn train station.

One witness said that by 4pm about 60 young people — some aged about 15 — were outside the home, including on the balcony from which it is believed objects were thrown.
“They were blocking the road,” one man said.
“There was people on the balcony and a bottle had been thrown.

“People were coming from the station and taking over — it was getting out of hand.”
Police in divisional vans and plain-clothed officers swarmed the property.
Victoria Police spokeswoman Melissa Seach said police were called about 3.30pm.
“The kids had a party when they weren’t supposed to be, because their parents were away,” Ms Seach said.
“When police attended, they all ran.”
No one was arrested but officers were planning to phone parents.
