Two Asian men aged 65 and 59 struck each other in the aisles of the Eastwood Shopping Center (picture) in northwest Sydney on Sunday at 8:15 p.m.
The older man was charged with affronts after being taken to the Ryde police station.
The younger man, who suffered a head injury, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
It is believed that the two were known to each other.
The 59-year-old was later taken to the same police station for questioning, but returned to the hospital after complaining that he felt uncomfortable.
He is questioned again and the police say that further investigations will likely result in further charges.
Alan Ako, who works at BWS next to the Woolworths store, said he often saw people "running around frantically and pushing each other out of the way" to get baby food.
"We even had to hire a Chinese-speaking employee who can translate and try to calm people down and keep them updated," said the 37-year-old.
