Thugs in sickening footage of football fans fighting on Dundee Street, still being hunted by police six weeks later

Police Scotland have confirmed no arrests have been made more than six weeks after a shocking football fans fight in Dundee.

The violent incident earlier last month involving dozens of fans left a teenage fan in hospital with a serious head injury.

The 17-year-old was taken to Ninewells Hospital for emergency treatment following the mass brawl, which took place at 7.20pm on Saturday April 2.

Officials confirmed they had launched a full investigation into the violence and issued a publication naming a specific individual.

However, over a month and a half later, they confirmed that little progress had been made in tracking down the perpetrators and that “investigations were ongoing.”

The ongoing battle near the city’s hilltown and its aftermath were filmed.

The footage shows two groups of men fighting on a sidewalk and in the street near the intersection of Hilltown and Alexander Street.

It is not known what caused the flare-up, but a fan can be clearly seen lying face down in the street after being hit.

It is unclear which fans were involved in the shocking scenes. Dundee FC played Aberdeen earlier in the day in the city. The game ended in a 2-2 draw. Dundee United played against Hibs in Edinburgh.

At the beginning of the footage, taken from a window of a nearby apartment, a bus and a line of cars are forced to stop as the fight spills onto the street.

About 30 fans were involved in the melee, which moves from the sidewalk to the wasteland nearby.

Rain of brawls lash out at each other during the shocking clip, with several of the featured jobs kicking those who are already down.

At the end of the clip, a group can be seen gathering around the stricken fan, who was left face down before an ambulance was called.

Police Scotland asked for information immediately after the incident.

They confirmed the teenager suffered a serious head injury and was taken to Ninewells Hospital for emergency treatment.

And they are still hunting a man believed to be in his late 30s or early 40s in connection with the incident.

A spokesman said last month: “A 17-year-old man was attacked after a disturbance between a large group at around 7.20pm on Saturday 2 April 2022 on Alexander Street near the Hilltown junction.

“He sustained a head injury and was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment.”

Police Constable Matthew Rhind of Downfield Police Station added: “We are very keen to locate a male, aged in his late 30s to early 40s, of solid build, wearing black Adidas trainers, dark blue jeans, a black hip length hooded raincoat and a black suit Shawl, heavy face with thinning brown hair.”

“We are reviewing CCTV footage in the area and I would urge anyone who witnessed the attack or has dashcam footage and has not spoken to us to contact us as soon as possible.”

“Anyone with any information should call Police Scotland on 101 and cite incident 3089 from April 2, 2022.”
