A 26-year-old man is currently in a critical condition in hospital after being found injured by police in the early hours of this morning in Grimsby.
The man was discovered in Cooper Road, near the junction with Ladysmith Road, by a passing police patrol at approximately 0400hrs yesterday (Saturday 29 November).
He was taken to Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby but was found to have a serious head injury and so has been transferred to Hull Royal Infirmary where he is currently undergoing treatment and is said to be in a critical condition.
Detectives are trying to establish the circumstances leading up to the discovery of the injured man.
Detective Inspector Lee Bridgeman said: “We believe he was in Grimsby town centre socialising in pubs and bars with friends in the early hours but at this stage we do not know how he came to be on Cooper Road or how he came by his injuries.
“He is very poorly in hospital and it is vital that we establish what has happened to him.”
Detectives want to hear from anyone who might have seen anything in the area or recalls having seen a man walking along Cooper Road prior to 0400hrs.
Crime scene examiners have been conducting forensic examinations in the area where the injured man was found in an effort to find clues as to what has happened and a police cordon has been erected to protect the area.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to log 126 of 29 November 2014.Leave a comment
