News:Police Arrest One, Question Four Others Over Barbourfields Violence

<vote /> One person has been arrested while four others have been picked up for questioning in connection with the violence that erupted at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Sunday.

The violence started at the end of a Premiership match, a 1-1 stalemate, between Highlanders and Chicken Inn.

Acting Bulawayo police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Abednico Ncube said police are still conducting investigations following the disturbances,

One person has been arrested while four others have been picked up for questioning. The one who was arrested has been seriously linked to the violence that occurred. He is the one who first invaded the pitch after the match, resulting in the violence.

He also said police were concerned about acts of hooliganism,

We’re worried about hooliganism at soccer matches. People should learn to restrain themselves so that others can be in a position to bring their families to matches. They should leave those assigned with the match task to do their job.

Police could not immediately release the name of the suspect or the other four who were being questioned.
