As Americans, we have become accustomed to seeing fans fighting at games and possibly seeing a knockout or two. If the behavior is terrible, it pails in comparison to what goes on with soccer fans. The violence is always on another level as fans are willing to kill.
One person was stabbed Sunday inside Levi’s Stadium during a soccer match between Mexico and Qatar, according to police.
Lt. Cuong Phan of the Santa Clara Police Department confirmed the stabbing incident happened during the soccer event. Phan said the victim suffered a stab wound to the upper collarbone area.
The victim was listed in critical but stable condition, according to police.
Video has since been found of the incident.
Police identified a suspect and a person of interest involved in the stabbing and are seeking the public’s help in locating them so they can be brought to justice.
The suspect, who was last seen wearing a green Mexico jersey, is described as a man between 25 and 35 years old, with short, dark-colored hair and a thin mustache and beard.
The soccer competition at Levi’s Stadium featured matches between Jamaica and St. Kitts & Nevis, as well as Mexico and Qatar.
As for the game, Qatar advanced to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 1-0 win Sunday night over a Mexico team that already clinched advancement.
This was a huge rebound for Qatar. At the World Cup last year, Qatar became the first host to go 0-3, losing to Ecuador, Senegal, and the Netherlands.
