“This man may have family and friends who are desperately worried about his welfare and we need to trace them urgently.
“We also need to speak with anyone that was in the area on the morning of Wednesday January 5 before 11.15am, particularly those who waited with the injured man until the arrival of the ambulance but left before speaking with officers.
“They may be able to tell us something that could help us piece together how this man came to sustain his injuries.”
At this stage, officers say they are keeping an open mind as to how the man came to receive his injuries.
