AMAN was treated for a bleed on his brain af­ter be­ing af­ter be­ing found in his flat by po­lice.

Of­fi­cers were called to the Bold Street ad­dress at around 9pm on Sun­day evening to find the man had suf­fered mul­ti­ple in­juries.

He was taken to hos­pi­tal where his con­di­tion was de­scribed as se­ri­ous but sta­ble.

De­tec­tives have ap­pealed for in­for­ma­tion as they try to de­ter­mine whether the 44-year-old was at­tacked or suf­fered a fall.

A foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion of the scene has been car­ried out, as well as CCTV and house to house in­quiries.

Det Insp Gary Strat­ton said: “At this time, we are work­ing to as­cer­tain how this man came to be in­jured.

“It’s pos­si­ble that he was as­saulted or suf­fered a fall and we are hop­ing some­one may be able to as­sist us in piec­ing to­gether what has hap­pened. We know the vic­tim was last seen on Thurs­day and I’d ask any­one who may have seen a fight or as­sault take place in this area or maybe some­one was sub­ject to a fall and you helped them up?

“I’m sure you’d re­mem­ber if you’d wit­nessed this and I’d ask you to get in con­tact – any in­for­ma­tion no mat­ter how small could as­sist our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“The vic­tim is de­scribed as white, slim build, 5ft 5in tall with a shaven head and a beard.

“He is known to wear a cap, T-shirt and jeans and a black bub­ble coat.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact po­lice on so­cial me­dia or by call­ing 101 or con­tact the Crimestop­pers char­ity, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.

The man is be­ing treated at South­port and Formby Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal
