An Arsenal fan has been stabbed in the leg after being attacked by a group of Roma ultras as he made his way to the Olimpico on Wednesday night.

The Guardian reports a group of Roma fans ambushed a mini bus taking Arsenal fans to the match against the Giallorossi at around 19:00 last night.

It is believed the group of attackers began kicking the vehicle before smashing windows with stones and other objects. It is not clear as to whether the injured fan was stabbed by a Roma thug or injured by broken glass after windows were smashed.

A spokesman for the British embassy told the Guardian, "Roma fans entered the bus and the Arsenal fan was either stabbed or injured by broken glass when a window of the minibus was smashed."

The police were quick to arrive on the scene and a man has been arrested in connection with the incident. The rest of the Arsenal group were escorted by the authorities and it is believed there were no further injuries to the fans.

The stabbed fan was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries. He was later released and was able to watch the game in the stadium.

It is believed another fight took place involving other Arsenal and Roma supporters. Two English fans suffered various injuries.
