In Kirkwall in Dragon Age II, there are random group encounters of enemies in Docks, Hightown, and Lowtown at night during all three Acts who ambush Hawke and his/her companions. While some only appear in later Acts, it is possible for early gangs to appear all-throughout if you do not defeat them.

When you have defeated a gang you are able to collect a reward from a NPC called A Friend. This is not marked on your map or journal as a quest, but is a bonus for cleaning the streets.A Friend only appears at night, in the back room of The Hanged Man. She will continue to give out rewards each time the player clears out a band of thugs in the subsequent side quests.
