Two Chester FC fans were assaulted after attending the Blues’ FA Trophy fixture with AFC Telford on Saturday (December 12).

The two separate incidents, which are not believed to be football-related, happened as the fans made their way back to Wellington train station.

The first incident happened on King Street between 5pm and 5.30pm, when the fans were attacked by five or six men.

The second incident, which police say is ‘possibly linked’ occurred between 5pm and 5.20pm on Regent Street.

A group of 12 to 15 males assaulted the fans.

All males are described as aged between 15 and 18 and of Asian appearance, one wearing an Arsenal football top, one wearing a jacket with a fur rim around the hood, another with a dark coloured ‘puffa’ jacket and one with possibly a ripped coat.

PC Butler said: “I do not believe at this stage that they are football-related incidents but respectfully request information. Luckily the injuries sustained were not as bad as they could have been.

“As the Safer Neighbourhood Officer for the College and Arleston area, it’s an incident that does not reflect our area, but one that does not reflect well on it, so I’m keen for the offenders to be identified, but I do really need your help.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Butler at Wellington Police Station quoting reference number 0544S 121215.
