Assault on Sky Blues fan near the Ricoh last Saturday: do you have information?

Football bosses are appealing for witnesses after a Sky Blues fan was assaulted by a Bristol Rovers supporter after the game on Saturday (25th March).

The incident took place on Judds Lane, which is just off Rowley’s Green Lane near the Ricoh.

“Post-match there was, apparently, an unprovoked attack/assault on a 24 year old Coventry City fan on Judds Lane, near the road leading to Rowleys Green Lane and several taxis were waiting on the road as the incident happened,” said Bristol Rovers in a statement.

“The perpetrator, who was around 6’ tall and accompanied by a friend, was wearing a black jacket which had a Bristol Rovers logo on it.

“Other fans leaving the ground had apparently been accosted by these two and the traffic attendants who were working around the traffic lights near the big roundabout outside the ground had spotted the taller man.

“We do not want individuals like this associated with Bristol Rovers Football Club and we would ask if any of our fans witnessed the incident in question, or knows the name of either of those involved, to help trace the individuals involved,” they said.

Please either call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or West Midlands Police on 101.
