Armed duel during family picnic fight

`An afternoon picnic on a southern Sydney beach turned violent yesterday when a dispute between two families resulted in a saucepan versus knife duel in the fading light.

The two extended families – more than 180 people – had been picnicking separately at Dolls Point when a child from one of the families was struck by a soccer ball being used in a match by the other family, police say.

The incident caused an argument between the two families and two men allegedly attacked each other, one with a saucepan, the other with a knife, police said.’
