Officers investigating a report of an assault in Market Street, Ashby, are trying to trace the driver of a silver taxi.
A man was taken to hospital with head injuries in the early hours of this morning (12 February) and is now in a critical condition.
A silver taxi was parked close to the fight – and Leicestershire Police say they are keen to speak to the driver as they may have information which could assist the investigation.
Three men, two aged 25 and one aged 28, have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and are currently in custody.
An area of Market Street has been cordoned off while enquiries are carried out.
