A man found with severe head injuries in the grounds of Alexandra Palace has still not been identified, say police.
A MYSTERY man found suffering critical head injuries in the ground of Alexandra Palace had �700 cash on him, police officers trying to identify him have revealed.
The man was discovered near a park bench by members of the public, who called the ambulance service and police officers yesterday morning just after 11am.
The man, who is believed to be around 65 years old, remained in a critical condition at an east London hospital.
Enquiries are now ongoing to establish who the man is, how long he had been lying there and how he sustained his injuries.
The man is described as around 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall, with grey balding hair and a white-grey beard. He was wearing a dark green blazer with a blue fleece underneath, black trousers, brown boots and a chequered flat cap.
DS Stuart Robinson of Haringey CID said: “The man had no identification on him and, as yet, no one has come forward to identify him, so we are appealing to the public to call us with any information which may help us.

“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.
