27 Jul 2016

A 46-year-old man suffered multiple injuries in an unprovoked attack following Saturday’s Grimsby Town v Sheffield United match. (July 23)

The self-employed electrician – whose family has asked not to be named – had attended the match alone.

He was taking his regular route home along the sea front, from Fuller Street towards Suggitts Lane, when he was attacked.

The victim was found by police officers at around 5.45pm on a grassed area, approximately 100m from the Suggitts Lane railway crossing. He remains in hospital in a serious condition.

He is very slim and was wearing a distinctive anorak-style silver jacket and blue jeans.

This route was taken by numerous people leaving Blundell Park following the match and officers investigating are keen to speak to anyone with information.

Witnesses are asked to call 101, quoting log 212 of July 23.
