Police release details of football ‘disorder’ in Wembley, officer assaulted

Detectives investigating disorder between England and Germany football supporters in Wembley last year have issued an image of a man they want to identify.

On the evening of Monday, 26 September 2022, groups of supporters clashed at a pub in Dagmar Avenue in Wembley.

According to Met Police, the man pictured is believed to be an England supporter and is sought in connection with the assault of a police officer who was left with a broken collar bone. The incident happened at around 6:20pm.

This incident was part of wider disorder where a group of approximately 100 males, many wearing masks, approached the pub through an alley leading towards the car park. While a number of the group were wearing England hats and scarves, they were found to be opposition fans.

The group entered the beer garden of the pub and began assaulting customers, most of whom were in the area to attend the England vs Germany match. Punches and projectiles including traffic cones were thrown.

Officers responded and the group fled. The disorder lasted for around two minutes. A number of people sustained head and facial injuries. Three people sustained serious leg, wrist and thumb injuries.

If you recognise this man, please call police on 020 8246 9386 or 101 and quote Operation Wurzel. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
