The 21-year-old man was found suffering serious head injuries after a disturbance between two groups of people in Attock Park in Rufford Street in the Laisterdyke area around 8pm on Tuesday August 23.

A 17-year-old man was also injured and needed hospital treatment.

Five men were arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent.

While we have arrested a number of males in the course of this inquiry our investigation is continuing to find out who was responsible for the attack which has left a man seriously ill in hospital.

This is believed to have occurred close to some football pitches, where the victims had been playing just moments before.

A man is now fighting for his life and I would urge anyone who witnessed the attack or who may have information about those responsible to contact Bradford District CID on 101, quoting crime reference 13160363829 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, who can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555111."
