Is the new fish smaller than the other's? If so,, it may just be the unfortunate victim until pecking order is eastablished as with most large cichlid's.(Give it a few day's)
You may, if you have another tank or tub available,, pull the aggressor out for a day or two and then re-introduce the fish after you have moved decor around a bit.
Could also give the new fish a break, by placing a couple clay pot's large enough for the fish to enter, in the tank.This would give fish, or fishes a place to retire to if thing's get too rough.(Or large driftwood piece)
Ultimately,, If thing's get too bad and damage is occuring, and or fish is not able to feed as the other's do,, it may be neccesssary to re-home the fish being picked on.IMHO
