A woman claims she was thrown to the ground before being violently kicked by a fellow spectator during an AFL match in Melbourne during the weekend.
Alicia told 3AW & # 39; s Neil Mitchell that she was with her three children in Marvel Stadium for the St Kilda v Melbourne match when a fight broke out.
She said her 10-year-old daughter kicked the chair in front of her, causing the woman in the chair to turn around and shout at the girl.
& # 39; The lady started yelling at her and pointing her finger and I said: & # 39; Excuse me please do not take my daughter & # 39 ;, she said to Mitchell on Monday morning.
Alicia acknowledged that she and the woman shouted abuse at each other.
The mother of three said she has a possible broken elbow and bruises in her leg and is waiting for X-ray results after the alleged attack on Saturday
& # 39; They told me that I was a bad mother and that I should have bought an iPad for her because she obviously can't just sit still, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I think there was a bit of coarse language between the both of us & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I turned around and he threw his beer at me … I turned around and chased them, you know the instinct of that entire mother. I was pretty angry, & she said.
She said she was driving the man out of the stadium to the toilets, near the bar, before the alleged attack took place.
& # 39; And then he attacked me. He threw me on the floor and started kicking me. & # 39;
Alicia said the man's wife should pull him away from her.
The mother of three said she has a possible broken elbow and bruises in her leg and is waiting for X-rays.
She said she told the police that the man kicked her three or four times, but the amount of bruising indicates that she might have been kicked many times.
She said she was following the man out of the stadium calling for security.
& # 39; I told (security) that you should catch him, he just attacked me, and then the lady said: & # 39; No, she's crazy, she abused us & # 39; I was pretty upset when I cried, & # 39; she said.
The mother of three said she had made a statement to the police who now have his name and number, but were unable to contact him.
& # 39; I want him to be banned from all future matches, to be honest it is just not the kind of behavior that should be in football, & # 39; she said.
Alicia told 3AW & # 39; s Neil Mitchell that she was in Marvel Stadium with her three children for the St Kilda v Melbourne match when a fight broke out.
& # 39; It's a family, social event and people like that shouldn't be there & # 39 ;.
Despite the fact that the man kicked her while she was downstairs, she admitted she & # 39; absolutely & # 39; and had aggravated the situation prior to the alleged attack.
However, a number of listeners went to Facebook to beg the mother for inciting the argument.
& # 39; I'm sorry this happened to her, but if he threw a drink he was already aggressive, why chasing after him, that asked for trouble, & # 39; wrote a woman.
& # 39; First, I would have stopped my child from kicking the chair, I don't agree that he is kicking you, but you followed him, & # 39; wrote a man.
& # 39; it sounds like this woman continued to provoke this guy in a very aggressive way, & # 39; another said.
