VIDEO: Fan left bloodied by police after getting baton to the head with full force

Footage on social media shows a fan left bloodied by police after getting baton to the head with full force following the Championship South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday.

The incident, which is said to have taken place outside Barnsley bus station, started off with two lads scrapping, only for an officer to run in and hits one in the head.


Passers by looked on with horror at seeing such shocking actions taken towards the youngster, who was left hurt, bloodied and in a daze.

“He’s injured, he’s injured” is what another officer could be heard saying as the ground also got a covering of blood also.

A second copper allegedly smashed a phone of another person that was filming what had they had just witnessed.

It is assumed that the young lad was taken to hospital, however nothing has been revealed as of yet about his condition from the after effects of getting a baton to the head.

Warren Wright said on Facebook: I saw the whole i incident, the copper must have run 50 yards and had time to think about the situation. He could have quite easily hit him below the head, that was calculated, he knew exactly what he was doing. I insisted to another copper that i wanted to report an assult and got told to go away. PC 3139 will get away with it, SYP corrupt to the core.

The social media post captured the attention of thousands of users, who quickly shared it for everyone to see in the hope that a punishment would be dished out by the police.

An officer was also injured in the incident, with both being taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A full investigation would take place to determine the exact circumstances of the incident.

Chief Superintendent and Match Commander Sarah Poolman, said: “Yesterday, Saturday 8 February, following the Barnsley V Sheffield Wednesday match our officers responded to disorder outside the transport interchange.

“A full, open investigation, including extended video footage, will take place to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident, including the actions which led to a 16-year-old boy sustaining a head injury from an officer’s baton, and an officer being assaulted, sustaining injuries to his stomach and head.

“The 16-year-old boy was taken to hospital by ambulance. The police officer also attended hospital. Both of their injuries are not life-threatening.

“A 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency services worker. He has been released under investigation.

“If you witnessed the incident or have any video footage, please contact 101 quoting incident 232 of February 2020.”

Now you might want to look away for this photo of the injury that the boy suffered…

    That is as a brutal assault as you will ever see, ABH at its worst. Sacking, jail term and compo must be a given.

    Report the incident to your local Member of Parliament, show the MP the video and explain what happened. Bastards like that Police officer should be sacked and charged with assault.

    Absolutely pathetic. Lucky this officer had the strength of a very small child or otherwise it could have been game over for the teenager. This public servant not only should be sacked for this (as a hit to the leg would’ve been just as nullifying) but he should also go to prison for child abuse.

    Nothing surprises me anymore with the behaviour of SYP. They reckon they’re trying to win back trust after the disgraceful incidents of the last few decades but then sunk to this barbaric level. I could write a book on their double standards across so many areas. So many bad apples that we can no longer tell our children and grand children to trust a policeman.
