Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was seriously injured following an incident in Newmarket.

Officers were called at around 9.55pm on Saturday night to reports of a man found on the pavement who had sustained head injuries after falling to the ground in High Street, near to the junction with The Avenue.

As a result of this incident the man was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he is a critical but stable condition.

Detectives would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of this incident and who may have seen the man fall.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 quoting reference NE/14/2216, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 33-year-old man from Newmarket was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault as a result of this incident and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
