Leeds United fan left covered in blood after play-off semi-final neck slashing – Mirror Online

An altercation took place between a Leeds fan and a group of Norwich supporters after their meeting at Carrow Road on Sunday. The incident resulted in a man in his 60s being punched and struck with an object, causing a cut to his chin.

The victim was treated by paramedics at the scene. Two suspects were arrested at the scene, with one accused of causing grievous bodily harm and the other of assaulting an emergency worker.

An additional suspect is being sought by the police. Norwich City issued a statement confirming the incident and the arrest of two individuals by the Norfolk Police.

They pledged to cooperate with the authorities in investigating the incident and taking appropriate action. A Twitter user named *@DorsetHottub* claimed that the victim was his father and described the violent attack, attributing it to chants and references to past tragedies.

The incident is connected to the deaths of Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight in 2000, who were stabbed during street clashes. On the field, Leeds boss Daniel Farke expressed discontent with a disallowed goal and voiced his frustration about previous officiating decisions.

He also reflected on his team’s defensive performance in the match. The police have called for witnesses with information or phone footage to come forward and provide assistance with the ongoing investigation.

They also encouraged individuals to join a new WhatsApp community for Mirror Football content and special offers.
