Investigators have been told a 58-year-old Brunswick man got on the tram at the intersection of Weston and Blyth streets about 1.45pm on 25 January.

Two men approached the victim and a verbal argument ensued.

The situation escalated and one of the men struck the victim to the face, fracturing his nose.
