13-Year-Old Arrested Over Wolverhampton Football Attack
A 13-year-old boy has been arrested after a man was attacked after a football match in Wolverhampton.
West Midlands Police say they picked up the boy at an address in East Park, Wolverhampton, at around 5am this morning.
The schoolboy is being questioned about the assault on a Watford supporter following last Saturday's match at Molineux, that left 44-year-old Nick Cruwys, from Hemel Hempstead fighting for his life.
He was with a group of friends when he was assaulted in Littles Lane, and was taken to hospital with head injuries where his condition is described as critical, but stable.
An 18-year-old arrested in connection with the assault yesterday (11 March) has been released on police bail with conditions to report daily to a police station and banning him from Wolverhampton city centre on match days.
Detective Inspector Toni Naylor, from Wolverhampton’s Violent Crime Team, said: “This is not the end of our enquiry. I am now appealing to anyone who was involved in the incident to think about their actions and to do the right thing and contact us or hand themselves in to a local police station. We will leave no stone unturned to find the people involved and by coming forward you will be in a position to give your side of the story.
“We are extremely pleased with the amount of information we have received from the people of Wolverhampton and the wider football community from across the country, who having heard about the violence and have taken the step to provide information that could help our investigation.
“The family of the man assaulted would also like to extend their thanks for the support they have seen as they continue to juggle family commitments whilst their loved one remains in hospital.”
