Man suffers head injuries following incident between two villages

A man was found with head injuries between Finningham and Rickinghall yesterday morning.

Sometime between 5.30am and 6am, on Thursday, May 16, it is understood that a woman driver in a car, possibly dark blue, stopped to help an injured man at the side of a road between Finningham and Rickinghall. The woman gave him a lift to his friend’s address in Rickinghall and then left.

The man was later taken to the West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, where he remains in a stable condition. Police believe that the head injuries he sustained are consistent with having been assaulted.

Police officers would like to speak to the woman who assisted the victim as she left without leaving her details.
