Two more teenagers have been arrested in connection with the attack on Watford FC fan Nic Cruwys.

West Midlands Police has confirmed a 17-year-old boy was arrested in Staffordshire on Thursday and an 18-year-old man was arrested in Wolverhampton on Friday.

Earlier today it emerged the father-of-two is in a “stable and comfortable” condition, though he is still in critical care.

Both teenagers were arrested on suspicion of wounding and they have been released on bail while detectives continue their enquiries.

Seven teenagers have now been arrested in connection with the attack, which happened in Littles Lane, on the outskirts of Wolverhampton City Centre on Saturday, March 7.

Three other 18-year-old men and two teens aged 14 and 13 have also been arrested in connection with the attack, all with strict conditions to report to a police station daily and not to enter Wolverhampton city centre on football match days.

Officers confirmed all seven will be spoken to again in April.

Detective Inspector Toni Naylor, from Wolverhampton’s Violent Crime Team, said: “We have now made a number of arrests but our investigation is still very much ongoing.

“We remain keen to hear from anyone with information about the assault – who we have not yet spoken to – and I would urge them to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A representative at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham told the Watford Observer: “He is in a stable and comfortable condition.

“He is still in critical care but he is in a stable condition, but at the moment, he is stable and comfortable.”
