Man with "mystery" injuries found in Plymouth

Police in Plymouth are appealing for help to find out what happened to a man who received serious head injuries after a mystery incident.

He was found covered in blood outside the New York Express Takeaway in Notte Street by passers-by at around 1.30am on Sunday morning.

The 47-year-old had been out in the Barbican area of the city.

He's being treated at Derriford Hospital where he had to have 60 stitches to his head. The man also has two fractured eye sockets, a fractured nose, a fractured skull and a bleed to the brain following the incident.

The victim has told police he has little or no recollection of what took place but had been out drinking.

Officers have carried out local enquiries but still do not know what happened to him on the night.

It is a mystery to the victim and to us at this point as to exactly what took place.

We do know that nothing was taken from him as he still had his wallet and nothing else appeared to have been stolen from him.

We believe that the last pub he visited may have been the Three Crowns, which is near to where he was found.
