When asked about separating Stokes and Ryan Ali, 28, Mr Spure told the court: "The individual seemed to be the main aggressor or was progressing forward trying to get to another individual".
He said he attempted to get between Stokes and Ryan Ali as Stokes appeared to be "the main aggressor" but, as he did so, Stokes punched Ali "with a clenched fist".

Mr Ali "seemed to be trying to back away or get away from the situation" before he was punched by Mr Stokes, he added.
