POLICE are trying to trace a kind person who called the ambulance on Saturday morning after they found a man with head injuries lying in the road in Sandown Road, Rugby.

The passer by called the ambulance at around 8.30am after finding the man lying in the street.

He was taken to the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where he has received treatment for facial injuries including a fractured cheek bone and an injury to one of his eyes.

The injured man, who is 37-years old, initially had little recollection of what had happened to him and how he came to be injured. Some 12 hours later, while still in hospital, he was able to tell police that he recalled being punched in the face

Detective Constable Rob Ewington from Rugby Local Investigation team, who is trying the establish what happened to the man, wishes to trace the passer-by who called the ambulance as they may have valuable information that can help with the enquiry.

DC Ewington said: “We do not know the man came to be injured or how long the man had been lying in the street. His injuries are consistent with being assaulted. We would like to speak to the man who found him as the victim was already in hospital by the time we were able to speak to him.”

The person who called the ambulance, or anyone who knows who it is, is asked to contact DC Ewington at Rugby Local Investigation team on 01788 856135.
