Philly PD seek Flyers fans in postgame fight
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police in Philadelphia are seeking the public’s help identifying three men involved in a fight between Flyers and Rangers fans outside a cheesesteak shop following Monday’s Winter Classic hockey game.
Investigators say a man in a Flyers jersey is the main aggressor, throwing the first punch after a verbal dispute. Two other men join in the fight, which also involves a second Rangers fan.
The Flyers, through a team spokesman, had no comment.
Authorities say one victim needed stitches for his injuries. Family members tell WNBC-TV one victim is a Woodbridge Township, N.J. police officer and former Marine who served in Iraq.
