Man in life-threatening condition and two critically hurt in Leicester



Police in Leicester have begun a multiple assault inquiry after a man was found in a life-threatening condition and three others were injured.

Officers were called to Paget Road in Leicester at about 3.30am on Saturday morning.

They initially found a 19-year-old victim, and subsequently located two other men, aged 18 and 21, with serious injuries.

Another man, also 18, was hurt – but his injuries are not believed to be critical.

Detective Inspector Jim Hatton said: “An investigation has been launched to find out how these men suffered serious injuries.

“While we are carrying out enquiries at the scene, I would urge anyone who was in the area in the early hours of this morning to speak to me.”

He suggested individuals who were making their way home from a night out at the time – or taxi drivers who were passing through – may have witnessed something significant.

Several streets in the city, including Paget Road, Tyrell Street and Tudor Road, have been cordoned off.
