AN UNIDENTIFIED man is in a critical condition in hospital after he was found with facial injuries in the early hours of this morning (Monday February 22).
Police are appealing for the public’s help to identify the man, who they found when called to Newbold Road shortly after 3am after concerns were raised for his welfare.
Det Sgt Mark Calvert said: “So far, despite extensive work, we’ve been unable to identify the male who is in hospital in a critical but stable condition.
“We’re carrying out a number of lines of enquiry as part of our ongoing work but we’re keen to identify this male and establish how he came to suffer his injuries.
“We would ask anyone who was in the area at the time or who may be able to help identify the male to get in touch.”
The man is white with dark brown hair, possibly in his late teens or early 20s.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident 15 of February 22.
