Hammers’ fans asked their help over stabbing
Manchester Police are hoping Hammers’ fans can help in their investigation of a Good Samaritan who was stabbed when he went to the aid of a father and son involved in a row following the away game with Man City on May 1.
The injured man ended up in hospital with a puncture wound to his ribs for his trouble.
He was attacked as made his way home from the game along a cut through between Gurney Street and Palmerstone Street, Clayton, when he saw two men arguing with a man who was with a young boy, aged five-seven, wearing a replica West Ham shirt.
The victim intervened and was confronted by the two men, both wearing City replica shirts.
Det Con Nick Kershaw said: “It would seem that the exchange between the two offenders and the other man was enough of a concern to the victim for him to intervene and he has been violently assaulted for his troubles.”
