We are appealing for witnesses to a serious assault which occurred shortly after the Southampton-West Bromwich Albion football match on Saturday 11 November.
The incident is reported to have occurred between 5.10pm and 5.35pm at the junction of Above Bar Street and Civic Centre Road, Southampton.
At the time of the assault, the victim, who was a visiting supporter, was situated outside KFC. An unknown man has then approached him and punched him in the head, causing GBH injuries.
The suspect is described as;
- 5ft 8ins tall- Mixed or Asian appearance- Short black hair- Stocky build- Possibly wearing a grey jumper or jacket
The suspect was with another man, who is described as;
- White- 6ft 1ins tall- Big build- Wearing a pink jumper
This was a completely unprovoked attack which has left the victim with a fractured jaw. He has also since had to have six teeth removed.
Prior to the incident, the victim was heading towards Yates on Above Bar Street, but had become separated from friends, and ended up outside KFC.
We are now turning to the public for assistance in identifying the suspect in this case.
Did you witness the incident itself? Do you have any footage of the assault, whether that be mobile phone, dashcam or doorbell camera?
Do you recall seeing anyone matching the description of the suspect at any point following the game? Were you the man who was with the suspect at the time of the incident?
If you have any information which can help us with any of the above questions, please contact 101 and quote incident number 44230470513.
You can also report online via the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary website, or via Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
All football supporters, whether home or away fans, should be able to attend a match without fearing an assault. If you believe you can help us in our investigation, please get in touch.
