Due to the mystery surrounding how he ended up there, officers have been making enquiries in the days following the incident.

These enquiries have led police to think the victim was assaulted around 4am, shortly after making a purchase in the Subway sandwich store in Chapel Road.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 317 of 16/08.
