Man left in hospital after two incidents in Riddings

Police are appealing for information after a man was left hospitalised, and another threatened, during two separate incidents in Riddings.

Both incidents took place in Church Street between around 10.30pm and 11pm on Sunday 28th August.

The victim, a man in his 40s was left with serious injuries to his head after being assaulted. He remains in hospital with what are believed to be life-changing injuries.

A second man, who is in his 20s, was assaulted and threatened shortly after the first assault – and it is believed that both incidents were carried out by the same man, who was walking with a blonde-haired woman.

The man is described as being white, in his late 20s or early 30s, with short dark hair and was wearing a black tracksuit jacket and black shorts.

The woman he was walking with is described as being white, in her 30s, with long blonde hair and was wearing light blue jeans.
