A female Sharks supporter has been discharged from hospital after being the victim of an attempted robbery at Kings Park last Friday.
The fan, who was in the bathroom at the time, was accosted by a man who tried to rob her of her handbag after the match between the Sharks and Pumas.
Despite not resisting, the fan was still injured during the altercation with the man. Medics treated her on site and she was taken to hospital for further evaluation.
‘The safety of our fans is of paramount importance to us and we view this incident in a serious light,’ read a Sharks statement. ‘We will be working closely with our appointed security company and SAPS to ensure the safety of our fans throughout their visit to the stadium on match days.’
