A violent brawl at an Auckland mall has ended in two security guards being stood down after it spilled out into the street.

Video shows security staff repeatedly asking a woman inside the mall to leave, while she refuses to move.

Eventually she goes to make her way towards the exit before suddenly turning back and trying to re-enter the mall.

A security guard then grabs the woman and throws her on the ground towards the exit, the confrontation then makes its way outside.

Violence continued outside the mall as the woman's daughter threw punches at several members of the security staff.

The girl was eventually restrained by her mother and the pair left the mall.

A spokesperson for the mall told TVNZ two guards had been stood down while an investigation into the incident took place.
