The cop – who works for West Midlands Police’s football unit – was taken to hospital after “sustaining significant cuts and bruising to his head” following the attack behind the Stan Cullis stand.

Four men, aged 21, 20, 19 and 18, were later arrested nearby on suspicion of assault and they remain in custody for questioning.

West Midlands Police said the cop – who was attacked from behind – was discharged from hospital on Wednesday morning to recover at home.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: “It’s understood he was approached from behind by a group of men on a grassed area and hit in the side of the head.

“He was knocked unconscious, suffered a head injury, and was taken to hospital for an assessment and treatment.”

Detective Inspector Kate Longbottom from West Midlands Police said cops are now appealing for witnesses.

She said: “We’ve spoken to some witnesses but potentially many more people were in the area and saw what happened or the offenders running off.

“We really need to speak to them as they could have important information; I would ask them to get in touch as a matter of urgency.


“There was a good atmosphere in the build-up to the game, high spirits and lots of families enjoying the occasion.
