Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was found with head injuries in West Hendford near Yeovil town centre in the early hours of this morning.
A man in his fifties was found by members of the public in an alleyway running between Tesco car-park and the Manor Hotel.
He was taken to hospital where he remains in a life-threatening condition. His next of kin have been located and informed.
We’re investigating the man’s movements during Saturday evening and early Sunday morning as we want to establish how he got these injuries.
He’s described as white, of proportionate build, with dark hair. He was wearing a black padded jacket over a grey woollen jumper and had a distinctive Manchester City football scarf on with black and white writing on it.
We know he watched the Chelsea vs Manchester City Premier League game in the Westminster pub in Westminster Street and he also attended the Liberal Club, now known as the 94 club, and then the Labour Club.
He’s captured on CCTV going into the alleyway at 2am but we’re appealing for anyone who used this alleyway between 2am and 3am to come forward, as well as anyone who saw a man matching the description given during the evening.
We also believe the man’s black leather wallet may be missing so if anyone finds a wallet matching this description, please call us.
