Renewed appeal for information after man found injured on Hayling Island
Main article content
Officers investigating the circumstances in which a man came to be injured on Hayling Island continue to appeal to the public for information.
We were called shortly after 5am on Wednesday 7 September to a report that a man in his 80s had been located on Sea Front with serious injuries.
He was taken to hospital, where he continues to recover. His injuries are not considered to be life threatening at the current time.
Our enquiries around how the man came to be injured are ongoing. We have previously appealed to the public for information and are renewing our appeal now that we have a little more information about the man’s movements prior to him becoming injured.
We believe the man travelled from Chichester the day before the incident (Tuesday 6 September) and that he may have been walking around the Havant and Hayling Island areas from Tuesday afternoon until he was located on Sea Front in the early hours of September 7.
The man was wearing dark blue trousers, a white shirt with black stripes, a dark blue jacket and black shoes. He has a distinctive walk with a slight shuffle.
He has straight grey hair, grey facial hair, is of slim build and is 5ft 6/7ins tall.
We are hoping that this description may jog someone’s memory if they saw him in the hours leading up to him becoming injured.
Did you see this man on Tuesday 6 September or in the early hours of Wednesday 7 September?
Do you live nearby and have dash cam footage, Ring doorbell or CCTV footage that may assist our enquiries?
Anyone with information who has not yet spoken to officers is asked to call 101 quoting reference 44220364505.
