Pitch invader images released after Australia football violence where goalie attacked

After “shocking” violence at a football match, the Australian police released images of those they wanted to track.

Melbourne City goalkeeper, who was attacked by fans and drenched with sand from a bucket, needed hospital treatment.

The trouble broke out during Saturday’s derby against Melbourne Victory, and players and the referee fled down the tunnel.

Victoria Police stated that more than 150 people had poured onto the pitch, and that a “significant amount of flares were lit and thrown through them”.


Two people were hurt by the bucket: goalie Tom Glover, referee Alex King, and a cameraman was left with burnt clothing and bruising after a flare struck his back.

Police are also looking into cases of assault and criminal damages and have published photos of people “might be in a position to help with inquiries”.

Operation Astute is being pursued by detectives working together with the football authorities and clubs.

Superintendent Jason Goddard stated that “what we saw last night was shocking, disgraceful, and lacked complete respect for football.”

“I love the game, and I feel very sad about the way it was played last night.”

Goddard stated that he has “no doubt” that he would knock on some doors “soon”.

Football Australia, the game’s governing body said that the scenes at AAMI Park were shocking on Saturday.

It stated that such behaviour was not acceptable in Australian Football and that a Football Australia investigation would immediately begin. There will be severe sanctions.
