Three people have been questioned over a man's death after an altercation with security staff at Melbourne's Crown Casino, while two others have been charged over the assault of one of his friends.

Homicide squad detectives on Monday interviewed five men, all believed to be security staff from the casino, over the July 3 incident.

Two Werribee men, aged 26 and 23, and a 39-year-old Northcote man were interviewed about the death of Anthony Dunning but police said they were released pending further inquiries.

Police said the investigation into the 40-year-old's death was continuing.

Two others were interviewed about what police described as a separate assault on a patron, believed to be one of Mr Dunning's friends.

A 29-year-old Essendon man and a 25-year-old Highett man were charged with recklessly causing serious injury and were bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court on October 28.

Mr Dunning died four days after a dispute with bouncers at the casino on July 3.

The Ferntree Gully man had been asked to leave by casino staff and met two friends on his way out.

A woman called Olivia slapped one of the security staff and was put down on the ground and when her partner Matthew came to help her he was also put down on the floor, suffering a broken nose, a fractured arm and some cuts and bruising.

Police have said five to six bouncers pinned Mr Dunning down for six minutes and that video footage shows he did not provoke security staff.
