Police investigate Newcastle street brawl after Jamaal Lascelles ‘attack’ | Newcastle United

A police investigation is ongoing after an incident outside a nightclub in which Newcastle club captain Jamaal Lascelles and his group were allegedly attacked. Reports say the player’s 19-year-old brother was elbowed in the head and another member of the group passed out during what Northumbria Police said was a ‘disorder’ at around 4am morning on Sunday August 20 in Newcastle city centre.

Newcastle had lost 1-0 away to Manchester City the day before and Lascelles would be out that night in Newcastle.

It was also reported that Lascelles and his group were threatened with being shot. One of his band members was knocked to the ground and had to be hospitalized after being knocked unconscious after being kicked in the face, it was reported, and Lascelles was punched in the back of the head. No arrests were made.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “Shortly after 4am on Sunday August 20, we received a report of disturbance involving a number of people on Westgate Road in Newcastle city center . Officers attended, but it appears those involved had already left the scene prior to their arrival.

“Investigations are ongoing and anyone with information should use the Tell Us Something page on our website or call 101, quoting NP-20230820-0227.”

Newcastle declined to comment.

Lascelles has captained the club since the age of 23 and has retained that role despite losing his first-team spot under Eddie Howe, with on-field duties handled by Kieran Trippier.
