Philadelphia police are investigating after a Lions fan said he was attacked by a group of Eagles fans after Sunday’s game.
Police told the Associated Press that a 33-year-old man wearing a Lions hat and jersey was assaulted while leaving Lincoln Financial Field after the Eagles beat the Lions on Sunday.
The fan told the Philadelphia Inquirer that because he was wearing a Barry Sanders jersey, Eagles fans pelted him with snowballs throughout the game, and that as he left after the game, a group of six men surrounded him and screamed at him.
“I was like, ‘Are you guys serious? You won, enjoy it,’” the man said.
Instead, he says, the group of Eagles fans attacked him, punched him, choked him and knocked him unconscious.
Philadelphia police say they are searching for surveillance video that may help identify anyone involved in the attack, and they are asking witnesses to come forward.
