Appeal after man found in Nottinghamshire street with fractured skull

Officers investigating a serious assault have made a plea for the public’s help after a man was left with a bleed on the brain.

After receiving a report of a group of people fighting outside a store in Gateford Road, Worksop, shortly after 2.30am on Saturday (25 February) officers were quick to respond and found the victim on the floor.

The victim in his 30s then became unconscious and was rushed to hospital where it was discovered he had a fractured skull.

The public is now being asked to get in touch if they were in the area at the time and witnessed the incident or know anyone involved.

PC Chris Putland, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a nasty assault which left the victim being rushed to hospital and needing immediate attention.

“We are continuing to carry out lengthy CCTV inquiries and our neighbourhood officers are out in the area on regular patrols throughout Worksop town centre so if you have any information please do come forward.

“This kind of assault and behaviour – no matter if it occurred in the middle of a busy Saturday night or the middle of the day – will never be tolerated and we are doing everything we can to find out who’s responsible.”
