Residents around Roselawn Drive in north Orange near the Botanic Gardens were woken on Sunday at about 3:30am by the sound of people arguing.



One resident told The Orange News Examiner that they opened their front door and saw a group of young adults involved in what appeared to be some type of verbal dispute.

Three cars had been parked on Bonnie Doon Place, a small cul-de-sac that runs off Roselawn Drive.



Police were called, but before they arrived a white Mazda had been set alight on a vacant block on the corner of Bonnie Doon Place and Roselawn Drive, and the group had vanished in the vehicles.
