Arrests have been made in a football disorder inquiry at a Middlesbrough V Sheffield match.

South Yorkshire Police have arrested five people on Cleveland Police’s behalf in connection with crime and disorder at the match in August.

A number of officers from Cleveland Police travelled to South Yorkshire to interview the men, and all five arrestees were charged.

Their details are as follows:

  • A 19 year old man was charged with assaulting a police officer
  • A 34 year old man was reported for a Section 5 Public Order Act offence
  • A 41 year old man was charged with a Section 4 Public Order Act offence
  • A 19 year old man was charged with a Section 4 Public Order Act offence
  • A 31 year old man was charged with a Section 4 Public Order Act offence

The arrests come after five Sheffield Utd fans voluntarily attended police stations in the South Yorkshire Police force area for questioning on crime and disorder at the same football match.

The five men were all reported for summons, and all were given Football Banning Orders and released under investigation:

  • A 28 year old was reported for a Section 4 Public Order offence
  • A 17 year old was reported for a Section 2 Public Order offence for throwing missiles
  • A 17 year old was reported for a Section 5 Public Order offence
  • A 34 year old was reported for a Section 2 and Section 5 Public Order Offences for throwing missiles inside and outside of the grounds
  • A 21 year old was reported for a Section 5 Public Order offence

Joint inquiries into the disorder are on-going, with support from South Yorkshire Police and both football clubs.
