A Cobar man who was involved in a late-night brawl in Dubbo has pleaded guilty in court.
John Stirling had been drinking at the Pastoral Hotel in Dubbo on August 22 last year when he walked across the road to a group of three men before attacking them, and knocking one man unconscious.
The 22-year-old Cobar man was with a group of people when the fight broke out on the corner of Talbragar Street and Carrington Avenue about 3.30am.
The attack was captured on CCTV. Police facts said "at no point on the footage can any three victims be seen to throw a punch during the entire incident".
Stirling took steps toward his first victim punching him in the face with "significant force" knocking him to the ground, where he laid unconscious for 15 minutes, court documents revealed.
Stirling turned to another victim and punched him, causing him to stumble backward.
One of the victims made an attempt to push Stirling away, however he managed to grab onto him and continued to throw punches at the victim.
Police arrived a short time later, however Stirling and the other people involved in the brawl had fled the scene.
They were later located outside the Commercial Hotel, however police facts said no one admitted they were involved in the incident, and all appeared to display "a complete lack of remorse for their actions".
They were taken to Dubbo Police Station. When Stirling was asked about his behaviour he said he "just snapped".
At Dubbo Local Court on Wednesday, Stirling pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm, affray and two counts of common assault.
A letter of apology, along with letters from Stirling's parents and a character reference from his grandfather were handed to Magistrate Gary Wilson ahead of sentencing.
A sentencing assessment report was ordered and Stirling will be sentenced on March 15.
