Man Comes Forward In Cruwys Investigation
A man has come forward to police investigating the serious assault on Watford FC fan Nic Cruwys.
West Midlands Police said the 20-year-old man had identified himself to officers conducting inquiries into the attack on Watford fan Nic Cruwys.
The force issued an appeal on Monday for information to trace a man who was believed to be from the Telford area of Shropshire.
Mr Cruwys suffered a serious head injury after being set upon by a group of youths in Wolverhampton on March 7 following a Championship fixture.
The 44-year-old, who was taken to hospital in a critical condition, is awaiting a placement at a specialist rehabilitation unit.
Detective Inspector Toni Naylor, who is leading the inquiry, said on Tuesday: "As a result of police releasing the image of a man we wanted to identify in relation to the assault, a man telephoned officers in Wolverhampton last night and we will be speaking to him later today.
"The investigation remains ongoing and I would urge anyone with information to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, confidentially on 0800 555 111.''
A total of 12 people have been arrested and bailed in connection with the assault.
