Authorities Investigate Brutal Attack on Soccer Fan in Northern Mexico

MONTERREY, Mexico – The Attorney General’s Office in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon is trying to find those responsible for a brutal attack on a Tigres UANL fan who was seriously injured over the weekend by supporters of the rival Monterrey Rayados, officials told EFE.

“According to the most recent reports, the victim is in critical condition, and doctors at University Hospital are working to save the patient’s life,” an AG’s office spokesman said.

On Sunday afternoon, a group of Rayados fans fought with Tigres fans outside a public clinic in Monterrey, the capital of Nuevo Leon.

A man was savagely attacked and a video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

Rayados hooligans stripped and brutally beat the Tigres fan before the match started, leaving the victim on the verge of death, media reports said.

The AG’s office is conducting an investigation to find the perpetrators with the assistance of the State Investigation Agency and the Criminology and Crime Scene Investigation Institute, the AG’s office spokesman said.

A hospital spokesman said the victim was in critical condition after having his abdomen cut open with a broken bottle.

On Monday, the Tigres UANL and Monterrey Rayados, two of the most bitter rivals in Mexican soccer, said there was no place for violence among their fans.

“Taking a big rivalry in soccer into the streets is shameful and unacceptable,” Tigres management said in a statement, urging anyone with information about the attack to contact authorities.

Monterrey’s management called on authorities to clear up what happened and demanded justice in the case.

“Our organization strongly disapproves of those who provoke or engage in this type of violent behavior that causes irreparable damage to northern families and harms the sport,” the Rayados said.
