Police appeal after 71-year-old man suffers head injuries in Matson

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was found with serious head injuries in Matson on Monday night.

Around 7.40pm the ambulance service reported that they had been called to the man who had been found on the pavement in St Peters Road.

The 71-year-old was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital where he is being treated. His condition is said to be stable.

DC Victoria Morrow said: "The man is still very confused and cannot remember what happened so at this stage we are not sure whether he sustained these injuries as a result of a fall or an assault.

"He does not appear to have had anything stolen but it is important that we find out what happened and whether a crime has been committed.

"Officers have conducted house to house enquiries, but so far no information has been forthcoming.

"Anyone who was in the area on Monday night and either saw him wandering around or anyone acting suspiciously is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident 397 of 10 February."
