Four men were taken to the police station, on Wednesday night, on suspicion of assaulting a Bahia fan, near the Arena Fonte Nova, in the Nazaré neighborhood, in Salvador. The case happened on the same day as the Tricolor victory over Barcelona de Ilhéus, in the fifth round of the Bahia Championship.
The suspects got out of a vehicle to attack the victim, and were caught by a team from the Capital Ronda Group (Rondac), a specialized unit of the Salvador Municipal Civil Guard that was patrolling the area.
By means of a note, the Salvador Municipal Guard reported that a wooden bat, an iron bar, two hunter-style knives and a pair of brass knuckles were found with the suspects.
The four suspects in the attack were taken to the Central de Flagrantes. The victim suffered bruises and is OK. The suspicion is that the action is motivated by fights between fans.
