Police appeal after man found injured

Police officers are continuing to appeal for information after a man was found seriously injured in Elgin on Sunday evening.

The man, who is in his twenties, was discovered at Reiket Lane by a passing motorist at around 8.20pm on the south bound carriageway. He had sustained a head injury and was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital for treatment – his condition is serious but not life-threatening.

Speaking on Monday, Road Policing Sergeant Alexander Bowser-Riley said: “Firstly I would like to thank the motorist who stopped at the scene and contacted emergency services for help, and to all those who have provided assistance so far.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances of how this man came to be injured. Following a road collision investigation carried out at the scene, one line of enquiry being pursued is that he was involved in a collision with a vehicle. We are, however, keeping an open mind.

“I appeal to anyone who was in the Reiket Lane area around 8.20pm last night (Sunday 19 May) and who saw anything that could assist to get in touch, in particular if you saw a man in his twenties wearing a maroon top, blue jeans and black boots. A review of CCTV and door-to-door enquiries are also being carried out and I urge anyone with any information to get in touch with Police if you haven’t spoken to an officer already – please quote incident number 3927 of May 19.”
