Two suspects in AZ stadium riots report, footage on TV tomorrow
Two people have now reported to police because of the disturbances following last Thursday’s AZ – West Ham United match. They are suspected of open violence, police say.
A number of other suspects have also already been recognized based on images viewed by police. Tomorrow night, police will show 24 photos of suspects on the television program Opsporing Verzocht. They are suspects who have not yet been recognized by police.
“If you yourself are involved in these disturbances and would like to prevent your photo from being shown on national television, please report as soon as possible,” police warned.
On Thursday, rioters pulled down a fence and stormed the main stand of the AFAS Stadium in Alkmaar, following AZ’s elimination in the Conference League semifinals. There they sought confrontation with fans of West Ham United from London.
At the match in England a week before, there was also unrest. Then AZ fans were attacked by West Ham fans.
