Arrests have been made after police released images of eighteen people wanted in connection to violence and disorder following the Millwall v Leicester City FA Cup match last month.

After the final whistle on February 28, a number of Millwall fans went onto the pitch in front of Leicester City supporters at the Den, which led to violence and disorder between both sets of fans with missiles, including seats and bottles, thrown.

Police initially released images on March 1 of eighteen people who are wanted in connection with the incident – but nine have now (March 8) been identified.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of affray on the match day.

A 57-year-old, a previous Millwall fan, was arrested on suspicion of affray but was released with no further action.

A 49-year-old man and a 25-year-old man, both Leicester City fans, were arrested on suspicion of affray and both accepted a caution.

Three people have since been arrested and an additional three people  have been interviewed under caution in connection with the disorder after the match.

A 16-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and has since been released on police bail until early May pending further inquiries.

A 17-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and has since been released on police bail until early May pending further inquiries.

A 27-year-old man from Gravesend was arrested for football-related offences and has been bailed until early April pending further inquiries.

Three males aged 15, 28, and 49 years, have also been interviewed under caution for football-related offences and inquiries continue.

Detective Chief Inspector John Oldham, from the Specialist Crime and Operations Public Order Branch, said: “This was despicable behaviour and has absolutely no place at a football match. It was pure luck that no one was badly hurt.

“Supporters should be in no doubt that anyone involved in or responsible for the disorder will be dealt with robustly and, once identified, we will seek to arrest them and put them before the courts.

“There is no place for this kind of behaviour and I would urge anyone who recognises who any of these people are to get in touch with us.”

Anyone who recognises any of the individuals in the images should contact the investigation team on 020 8246 9386 quoting the image reference number at the bottom of the image, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
