A 39-year-old man left critically injured following an assault in the Bradgate area of Rotherham has died.

At around 6.25pm last Monday (4 February), the man was found with life-threatening injuries, lying unconscious on Midland Road, at the junction with Garden Street.

He was taken to hospital where he sadly died yesterday afternoon (Sunday 10 February). While the man has not yet been formally identified, his family have been informed and are continuing to receive support from specialist officers.

Detective Chief Inspector James Axe, leading the investigation, said: “As our enquiries continue we remain keen to hear from anyone who was in the area when the assault took place.

“We are aware that there were people in the area at the time of the offence and I would ask that these individuals contact us.

“At that time on a Monday evening, many people may have also been returning home from work, or heading out – did you see what happened? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously?

“Any information you have could prove vital in helping us to piece together what happened to the victim. We’re also keen to hear from anyone who may have dashcam footage.

“If you can help, please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 666 of 4 February 2019.

Three men, aged 18, 19 and 37, arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the incident remain on police bail.
