Officers are desperate to find out how he came to be injured
Police have named a man who was found with serious head injuries in an underpass last month.
Muhammad Hussain was found unconscious in the walkway at the junction of Burleys Way and Church Gate in Leicester city centre by a member of the public shortly before 2.30am on Sunday, November 24.
Officers said Mr Hussain’s family are desperate to find out how he came to be injured. The family has released a photograph of the 38-year-old to aid the police appeal for information.
Mr Hussain is currently being treated at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre where he remains in a critical condition.
Detective Constable Denise Reidy said: “Muhammad’s family are devastated over what has happened and are desperate for answers.
“They have released a photo in the hope that it might jog someone’s memory.
“Muhammad is from Nottinghamshire and believed to be unfamiliar with the city centre.
“Officers and his family are keen to know how he got to Leicester and who he was with that night.
“We are keeping an open mind as to how the incident occurred and we would like to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to Muhammad during the evening of Saturday November 23 and the early hours of Sunday November 24.
“In particular we would like to trace a potential witness who directed a member of the public towards police officers.”
That potential witness is black, approximately 30 and 5ft 8ins tall. He has short afro-style hair and was carrying a small bag which is believed to have been a takeaway food bag.
