Man 'seriously injured' in Carlisle assault

A man was in a serious condition today after suffering severe head injuries in a vicious street attack.

The 36-year-old was receiving treatment in hospital after an assault in Warwick Road, Carlisle, that has prompted a police appeal for information.

Officers said there may have been more than one attacker involved and they are also trying to trace a woman the victim may have been with before the assault.

The incident happened at about 11.30pm yesterday. The injured man was taken to the city’s Cumberland Infirmary.

His attacker or attackers may have fled down Crosby Street, which is just off the top of Warwick Road near the city centre.

Detectives say they are trying to establish the circumstances of what happened and what led to the violence.

Officers were due to carry out investigations in the Warwick Road area today and have appealed for anyone who was in this area last night, from about 11pm, to get in touch.

Detective Inspector Craig Smith said: “We are making inquiries today but are appealing for anyone who was in the area to come forward. We understand that the victim may have been with a woman prior to the assault and we are very keen to speak to her.

“We believe the offenders ran off down Crosby Street.

“Anyone who was in the area, driving or walking, and has seen anything, no matter how small, should get in touch.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 and ask to speak to the on-duty sergeant in Carlisle CID or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
