Detectives investigating an assault which left a 69-year-old man critically injured have released CCTV images of witnesses they need to trace.

At about 7am on Sunday 27 October, emergency services were called to Dobie Street, Worsbrough Common, where the man was found with severe head injuries.

He was taken to hospital where he remained in a life-threatening condition for a number of weeks. His condition has since improved slightly and is now described as serious but stable.

As detectives continue with their enquiries, they are looking to trace a number of drivers and pedestrians who were in the Dobie Street area in the hours leading up to when the victim was found at 7am.

Detective Constable Emma Shipley, investigating, said: “The footage shows a number of vehicles and a pedestrian on Dobie Street on the morning of Sunday 27 October, between 1.10am – 5.20am.

“I’d like to please ask people to cast their minds back – were you in the area that morning? Do you drive to and from work along that road?

“It’s really important that we identify and speak to these witnesses as they may have vital information about what happened.

“If you think you were in the area that morning, please get in touch with us.”
If you were in the Dobie Street area that morning, or have any information about what happened, please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
