Detectives in Doncaster are asking witnesses to come forward following an incident which has left a 43-year-old man fighting for his life.

Just after 3.05am on Sunday 14 October, emergency services were called to Prince’s Street, following reports that the man had been severely injured as a result of an altercation with another man.

The incident happened outside of the Iceland store and detectives are keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened.

Detective Sergeant Claire Moss, leading the investigation, said: “The victim is still gravely ill in hospital, in a critical condition, and his family are in the process of travelling over from Lithuania to be with him.

“The altercation between the victim and another man happened near to a busy taxi rank. People had obviously been out enjoying their Saturday evening, which had spilled in to the following morning.

“It’s those people who I would like to speak to. Did you see what happened? Do you have any information about the incident?

“As our enquiries continue to progress, we really need people who saw what happened to get in touch with us, so we can identify the other man who was involved.

“If you can help, please call either 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 183 of 14 October 2018.”
