Man Comes Forward After CCTV Appeal Over Attack On Watford Fan In Wolverhampton
A man's come forward to police after CCTV images were released of someone officers wanted to speak to over an attack on a Watford fan in Wolverhampton.
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 yesterday for information to trace a man who was believed to be from the Telford area of Shropshire.
Mr Cruwys, from Hemel Hempstead, 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: "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."
A total of 12 people have been arrested and bailed in connection with the assault.
A Sandwell teenager has been jailed for life for killing a man and injuring another following a dispute over a stolen television.
A former Birmingham police officer has been found guilty of 40 sex offences against children as young as 8, despite two previous failed investigations into his abuse.
