Sickening CCTV footage showing an AFL player and his mate allegedly punching, kicking and stomping on two women in a late-night brawl has been finally released showing the horrifying extent of the assault. 

The late-night car park attack in Perth's entertainment precinct of Northbridge allegedly shows former Western Bulldogs player Brennan Stack and Shai Anthony Martin attacking the two women both aged 24. 

Tiara Cox and Kia Krakouer were left with serious injuries following the March 20 brawl and Martin has also been charged with assaulting a third woman, 20, reports The West Australian. 

The fight is understood to have been started after the car doors of the two groups slammed into each other - which led to yelling, hair pulling and the all out brawl.

Stack, 33, allegedly started the assault by punching one of the women in the head until she collapsed.

Martin, 25, then allegedly joined in and dragged a woman by the hair for five metres before repeatedly punching and kicking her head and back.  

When her friend tried to defend her, the attackers allegedly repeatedly stomped on her head, knocking her out. 

One of the women then tries to escape by crawling on her hands and knees but the attacker kicks her in the head. 

When the knocked out woman wakes, she also tries to scramble away but Stack, allegedly in the dark coloured t-shirt, raises a glass bottle in the air and appears to slam it down aiming for her head. 

The attacker then drags her along the ground before kneeling over her and raining more punches down on her head. 

The assault only stops when police arrive and intervene.

Both men were arrested and appeared at a bail hearing last week in which the police prosecutor describes the brawl video as 'sickening'.

The footage was only released after an application was made to court by The West Australian.

The court heard Mr Stack and Mr Martin had earlier been to the The Library nightclub and were returning to their car. 

Mr Stack's partner then became involved in a verbal argument with one of the 24-year-old women after their car doors hit. 

His defence lawyer claimed a football injury which left him with damaged eyesight caused him to think his partner was being attacked by multiple men.

'He has gone in to assist her – he was fearful for the safety of the mother of his children. It all happened very quickly,' defence lawyer Abigail Rogers said.    

Both men were refused bail by magistrate Andrew Maughan who said the allegations were 'too serious'. 

They have both been charged with doing an act causing bodily harm, while Mr Martin has also been charged with intent to harm and doing an act of bodily harm on a third woman. 

Both have yet to enter a plea and further charges are also likely as the investigation progresses. 

The women suffered concussions, cuts, swelling and bruising. 

A senior police officer described the alleged attack as the most 'ferocious' and 'vicious' he had seen in more than 20 years in the force.

Stack played for the Bulldogs from 2009 to 2011, when he was delisted at the end of the season
