Police probe after man rendered unconscious in Scunthorpe High Street
A MAN needed hospital treatment after he was rendered unconscious in a busy Scunthorpe street.
The 45-year-old man had been dropped off at the top of the High Street, close to its junction with Frodingham Road, on Sunday between 6pm and 6.30pm.
He then walked down the High Street towards Yorkshire Bank and saw two men he believed he knew talking to a taxi driver.
The next thing the man recalls was picking himself up off the floor, thinking he had been knocked unconscious.
Police say the man sustained no visible injuries. Although unsure what happened to him, he believes he was the victim of an assault.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and has any information about what happened to the man, or knows the identity of the two men talking to the taxi driver, is asked to contact Humberside Police by calling 101 and referring to log 494 of 02 December 2012. Or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
