Five teenagers and a man have been arrested in connection with an assault on a Raith Rovers fan following a football match.
The attack on the 17-year-old took place following the conclusion of a Scottish Championship match between Dunfermline Athletic and Raith at around 5.30pm on Tuesday, January 2, near East End Park stadium.
A video circulated on social media showed the young Raith fan being assaulted by a group, with his hearing aids falling out and being broken in the course of the assault.
Police arrested and charged three males aged 15, 17 and 20, in connection with the assault and they have been released on an undertaking to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court at a later date.
Three other male youths aged 14, 15 and 16, were then arrested and charged in connection with the incident as police say enquiries remain ongoing on Monday.
The young fan was invited by the Kirkcaldy club to meet the Raith squad following the assault and received a signed shirt and travelled on the team’s bus for Saturday’s game against Airdrieonians.
