Police appeal over man found seriously injured in Leicester street
Police have appealed for help piecing together the movements of a man who was found seriously injured in a street.
The 30-year-old is in hospital and is too poorly to tell police what happened to him.
He was found lying injured in Loughborough Road, near the Red Hill Way roundabout, Mowmacre, Leicester, at 1.30pm on Thursday, October 18.
However, police believe he had been assaulted some distance away near the junction of Loughborough Road and Elmdale Street, Belgrave.

Police said today hat the man, who is Asian, lives in Leicester but has no known relatives.
A 48-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
Detective Constable Pat Coyle said: "We have been carrying out a number of local inquiries surrounding this incident and we believe the man may have received his injuries on Loughborough Road near to Elmdale Street.
"We're therefore keen to speak to anyone who lives or works locally who might have visited the area or who may have seen him as they passed.
"We are interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen him in particular from 2pm on Wednesday October 17 through the evening to when he was found on Thursday.
"He may have at some time been at the shops on Loughborough Road, opposite Roughton Street.
"We want to try and build a picture of how and why he came to his injuries.
"We suspect he may have been assaulted but in order to properly investigate what happened we need to get a full understanding of his movements, how he got there and when he got there."
