An eyewitness told Evening Standard, "We initially saw a group of people running through the car park in all black, with scarves and balaclavas covering their faces wearing England hats, before hearing shouting and [seeing England fans] running in all directions."

The eyewitness added, "Hearing that some had weapons, people were then trying to get away from it, being scattered inside, round the back of the pub and across the beer garden, while others were trying to run towards them to get them away. It all happened very quickly, and in less than five minutes the Germans who had ran towards the pub were gone. A small number...had been struck by either the Germans directly or by things that had been thrown, some with blood over their faces and jackets. As we left around 15 minutes later, there were people being attended to."

A Metropolitan Police Spokesperson told LADbible, "At 17:50hrs on Monday, 26 September a group of approximately 100 males, many wearing masks, approached a pub in Dagmar Avenue, Wembley through an alley leading towards the car park. While a number of the group were wearing England hats and scarves, it is believed they were German ‘fans’. The group entered the beer garden of the pub and began assaulting customers, most of whom were in the area to attend the England vs Germany match."
