Man injured in city centre – can you help police?

Police have launched an appeal for information after a man was found with serious injuries on a city centre street.

At around 2am on Wednesday 1 November, a 29-year-old man was found by a member of the public unconscious on Division Street, Sheffield, across the road from the Sainsbury’s Local supermarket.

The member of the public called an ambulance and the man’s mother using the 29-year-old’s phone.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital, where it was discovered he had serious facial injuries including several broken bones.

Detective Constable Trish Sidaway from the Force Crime Unit said: “Feedback from the hospital suggests that this man’s injuries are not consistent with a fall and therefore we must explore the possibility that this man was assaulted, prior to him being found on Division Street.

“The man can recall leaving Walkabout bar on Carver Street, which means that between there and where he was found he may have been the victim of a crime.

“I’m appealing for anyone who was in the Carver Street area that evening to get in touch with police, to see if we can piece together the man’s movements and understand what may have happened to him.

“I would also really like to try and identify the member of the public who found our complainant – you might hold vital information that could help our inquiry and we’re really keen to speak to you.”

The complainant was reportedly wearing dark clothing.

If you have any information that could help officers, please call 101 quoting crime reference number K/145160/2017.
