Some very unfortunate news has come from off the ice in regards to the Montreal Canadiens and Winnipeg Jets series, as a fan named Alex Wojakowski claims he was both physically assaulted and robbed by several men on Monday night.

Wojakowski, who has scratches on his face and is currently walking with a limp, says he was punched, shoved, and had his Jets jersey ripped off while walking home after Game 4 on Monday. The 23-year-old was walking near the intersection of St. Catherine and St. Hubert streets near 11:30 PM when a group of roughly seven men began verbally harassing him. Wojakowski says he crossed the street in an attempt to avoid conflict, and it was then that three of them told him to give up his jersey, and that they were going to burn it.

«Then they rushed me and three of them punched me on the side of the head,» Wojakowski said. «One of them pushed me and he scratched me across the face. And then I tried to run to get away, and then one of them grabbed my jersey from the back, and he was trying to rip it off me and they were just really adamant on getting my jersey. So I just said okay, here, take my jersey.»

Wojakowski, who has lived in Montreal since 2019, said he has often gotten verbal jabs for wearing his Jets jersey along with his Toronto Maple Leafs uniform, (He is a fan of both teams) but it has never before gotten violent. He reached out to the police immediately after the attack and is hoping the men who attacked him will be found and charged. The Montreal police told CTV News that they have the footage and are reviewing it, but have not yet made any arrests.
