Middlesbrough fan arrested after leaving child to celebrate FA Cup win

11-year-old boy left in Trafford hotel room while man went drinking after victory against Manchester United
A Middlesbrough supporter has been arrested after leaving his 11-year-old son at a hotel while celebrating his side’s FA Cup victory against Manchester United.

Greater Manchester police used a Twitter post to confirm news of the man’s arrest on suspicion of child neglect.

The force’s GMP Stretford account, which covers the Old Trafford area, said the Middlesbrough fan left his son while “he went into town celebrating their victory drinking” after Friday’s night’s win.

About 9,500 away fans saw Boro knock United out of the FA Cup in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

The GMP’s tweet read: “Boro away fan arrested for child neglect last night, after choosing to leave his 11yr child in the hotel after the game while he went into town celebrating their victory drinking.

“We have looked after the child with an unhappy mum on her way down from N/East to collect him.”

A police spokesperson added: “In the early hours of Saturday 5 February 2022, police received a report of concern for the welfare of a child.

“Inquiries established that an 11-year-old boy was asleep alone in a hotel room in Trafford.

“A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of child neglect. He remains in police custody for questioning.”
