Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man was found unconscious at a bus stop in Manchester.
Just after 5.10pm on Thursday 12 August 2021, officers were called by a bus driver to a report of a man found unconscious at a bus stop in Manchester.
Emergency services attended the scene and found a man in his 50s with a serious head injury on Wilmslow Road, close to the junction with Victoria Road, Withington.
He was taken to hospital where he remains in critical condition.
Detective Inspector Christopher Potter, from GMP's City of Manchester division, said: "Officers have been carrying out a number of lines of enquiry since this incident to determine how the man sustained these injuries but are now appealing to the public to come forward with any information that may assist us.
"We're particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have been at the bus stop - which was travelling towards Manchester - or anyone who may have been around at that time.
"We believe the victim - who was wearing a light blue jacket, black baseball cap and black trainers at the time - may have visited Fallowfield and Withington earlier in the afternoon.
"Anyone with information is asked to call 0161 856 6063 quoting incident number 1138 of 13/0/21.
