Two people have been arrested in connection to an assault that happened on a local football pitch in Viby near Aarhus in September.

A 16-year-old boy was placed in an artificial coma after being stuck twice on the temple during a fight following a football match. He was placed in an artificial coma because the bone around his temple had been fractured.

Brotherly hate
The fight happened between two students from the same class during a football tournament at Viby Stadium. After the fight, the attacker then summoned his two brothers, who showed up with a baseball bat and threatened the injured party.

The 16-year-old assailant and one of his brothers – a 23-year-old man – have now been arrested. Police are interrogating the suspects to determine if charges can be filed.

The victim is out of his coma and suffered no serious effects due to the attack.
