Police in Leicestershire are trying to trace a supporter from the Leicester City FC Match at the weekend who assisted officers in making an arrest.
During the football match on Sat 6th Oct between Leicester City and Everton FC, police officers were made aware of a man who was allegedly throwing coins at rival supporters.
After the football match had finished, a member of the public assisted the police in detaining the man.
a 22-year-old man, who was arrested, has since been charged with throwing a missile in a spectator area and a public order offence.
He is due to appear at Leicester Magistrates Court at a later date.
Considering how many children were at the match, it is only by sheer luck alone that none of them were hit by the objects which were being thrown.
PC 248 Dave Stevens said: “unfortunately, while officers were arresting the suspect, the assisting member of the public left before we could speak to him and thank him.
“we would like him to get in touch with us so we can personally thank him for his assistance.
“If you are this man, or know who he is, then please call Leicester Police on the non-emergency 101 number”.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
