Assault victim dies in hospital

A murder investigation is underway in Sheffield after a 34-year-old man who was seriously assaulted earlier this month died in hospital.

The man was standing outside Emins Supermarket in Spital Hill, at around 3.45am on Sunday November 20th when it is reported he was assaulted.

He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and remained there in a critical condition, until his death today.

Formal identification and a post-mortem examination have not yet taken place, but the man’s family are receiving support from officers.

It is believed that the man may have been approached outside the store and detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the local area at the time of the incident.
