Police Investigate Downs/Bucs Match Chaos

The South African Police Service (SAPS) confirmed to the Siya crew that the football fan, who was detained as a result of the incident during the match between Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium, has been released on a warning.

As part of the ugly scenes that erupted during the Sundowns and Pirates match last Saturday, a football fan in Sundowns’ attire jumped onto the Loftus stadium pitch and angrily confronted Bucs’ assistant coach Rulani Mokwena.

The fan ran past the security personnel while the match was ongoing, and while gunning for Mokwena, both benches were involved in a scuffle which caused the match to be delayed for a few minutes.

The PSL has since condemned the incident. Contacted for comment, the SAPS confirmed to the Siya crew that the police are investigating all the possible witnesses who might have been involved in the incident.

“Kindly note that a warning statement was obtained for a 30-year-old man for his suspected role in Saturday's commotion. The police are working around the clock to obtain statements from all the possible witnesses whose identities cannot be revealed at this stage. A case of pitch invasion is being investigated,” Sunnyside Police Station spokesperson, Captain Daniel Mavimbela, told the Siya crew.

As the home team, Sundowns could face possible punishment from the League for the fan’s actions, should he be found guilty for invading the pitch and for attacking Pirates’ assistant coach.
