Officers are appealing for the public’s help after a man was found with life-threatening injuries in Ilkeston.
The injured man, who is in his 60s, had been to watch the Nottingham Forest vs Leeds match on Sunday (5 February) before catching a bus home to Ilkeston, leaving Nottingham at around 6.30pm. He is believed to have got off the bus near the Tesco in Nottingham Road, Ilkeston just after 7pm.
He was later found unconscious on Heathfield Avenue and was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham with life-threatening injuries.
It is currently unclear how the man came by his injuries and his family have been made aware.
At this stage, officers are treating it as an isolated incident.
Residents in the area will see an increased police presence throughout the day as investigations continue.
Officers are particularly keen to speak to a dog walker who found the man on the street as well as anyone who saw him either on the bus or walking through Ilkeston.
He was wearing a black jumper, blue and red body warmer, a Nottingham Forest hat and t-shirt, blue jeans and blue shoes.
