Chelsea and Arsenal fans riot – Police appeal for witnesses

Last Sunday evening a number of Chelsea and Arsenal fans were involved in a fracas at Mitcham Eastfields station in Surrey, and police are appealing for witnesses so they can apprehend the hooligans.

It seems the fight started on the 20.36 from Victoria and then spilled out into Mitcham stations, and then out onto the street.

A police spokesman, Detective Constable Darren Stenning, said: “We believe the two sets of fans exchanged words on the train as the 8.36 London Victoria to Dorking Southern service pulled into Mitcham Eastfields.”

“We believe a number of people on board the train and at the station witnessed this incident, including mothers with young children who had to move to avoid the fight.

“It’s extremely important that we build a clear picture of what took place. If you were on the train or at the station and witnessed the incident then I urge you to come forward and talk to us.”

Anyone who witnessed the riot are asked to call 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference B8 or 4/12/09, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
