Not only are Raptors fans taking heat for cheering for Kevin Durant’s Achilles injury, now they’re being slammed after a video showing a Warriors fan allegedly get sucker punched in Toronto was shared online.
In the video, which was shared on World Star Hip Hop, you can see a hooded man walk toward two people, one of which appears to be wearing a Golden State Warriors jersey, in downtown Toronto.
During this encounter, the man in the jersey and the person he is with are knocked to the ground in the middle of the busy intersection. You can then see the man in the jersey get back on his feet to follow his assailant, while the person he was with remains on the ground.
As the man in the jersey walks toward his attacker, another man approaches him from behind and appears to grab him around the neck.
The Toronto Police say they are aware of the video, and they are encouraging the individual involved to come forward and speak to the police.
“At this point, we have not received a complaint,” said Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu.
“We are investigating several separate incidents in the city last night, but we have not confirmed they are connected to the Raptors’ game or crowds at this time,” added Sidhu.
As we gear up for Game 6 on Thursday, the Toronto Police are encouraging the public to “celebrate responsibly, safely and within the law.”
And even though the big game is in Oakland, police will be throughout the city to ensure public safety and keep the peace.
“We would like to remind the public to make decisions that do not impact their own safety or that of others when gathering to enjoy game [sic] celebrations,” said Sidhu.
