The man was found outside Cliffs Pavilion on Station Road

First published in Local News by

A MAN woke up in hospital with serious facial injuries and no idea of how he got there.

The 32-year-old man from Scotland, who was staying with friends in Southend, was found by a member of the public shortly before 6.45am on July 17 outside Cliffs Pavilion before paramedics took him to Southend Hospital.

Police believe he was a victim of assault and wish to speak to the member of the public who found him.

Investigating officer Det Con Sam Boyd said: "The victim doesn’t remember what happened to him - the first thing he knew about it was when he woke up in hospital.

“His mobile phone and Galaxy tablet was missing.

“I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen what happened.

“In particular I would like the member of the public who called the ambulance service to get in touch with me.

“The victim suffered some serious injuries as a result of what happened.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Boyd at Southend CID via Essex Police 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A day does not go by when you read of violent crime in the Southend area. Even if you only go back 20 years, there were only a handful of SS postcodes that were less desirable places to frequent due to the chances of being a victim violent crime. Now we are in a situation where you become increasingly lucky not to become a victim of violent crime regardless of SS postcode it is.

He was from Scotland, probably a normal night out for him.
Plus did he come all the way from Scotland to watch a show at the Cliffs!? if not then where were the "friends he is staying with" - or did they desert him because he was too drunk on Tennants?!

'Woke up in hospital with no idea how he got there'. Sounds like a good night if you ask me.

No idea how he got there ? Surely it was in an ambulance - it says so in the article. Hasn't anybody told him ?
