THE discovery of a badly injured Polish man outside the Job Centre in Slough has left police mystified.

A member of the public called an ambulance on Sunday, September 16 after spotting the man at the junction of Yew Tree Road.

The man was taken to Wexham Park Hospital, Slough and later transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford where he remains in a serious but stable condition. The incident was subsequently referred to police.

Detective Sergeant Lucy Deane, of Berkshire Force CID, said: “We are working to establish the circumstances of how a man was located with very serious injuries which may have been from an assault or may have been the result of a medical episode. He sustained a bleed on the brain and multiple fractures.

“At this stage we are keeping an open mind and we are keen to hear from anyone who saw a man

“We are also working to confirm the man’s identity. We believe he is Polish and aged in his late fifties. If you believe you could be a relative of the man, please contact police.

“I would also like to appeal to the member of the public who located the man and called for an ambulance to contact Thames Valley Police.”

If you have any information which could assist the investigation please contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting the reference ‘43180297465’ or online.
