Police officers want to speak to driver of car seen pulling into the car park at time man was found
A renewed appeal has been made for information that could help police solve the mystery of how a man came to be found lying unconscious in an Aldershot car park.
The 21-year-old, from Aldershot, was found injured and lying on the ground in the King's Centre car park at 3.35am on the morning of Friday October 25 and remains in intensive care in Frimley Park Hospital with serious abdominal injuries.
It is thought that the man may have been hit by a vehicle, while police are also keen to speak to the driver of a car seen pulling into the car park at the time then man was found.
A member of the public found the man and two ambulances attended the scene, while police officers were investigating until midday.
Although the injuries were not described as life-threatening, and are consistent with those experienced by those hit by vehicles, the serious nature of the incident has prompted Hampshire Constabulary to make another pleas for information.
It is thought the injuries could also have been suffered accidentally, or by an assault.
Detective Constable Andy Grieve from Aldershot CID said: “A young man remains in intensive care with potentially life-changing injuries, and I am keen to speak to anyone who may be able to help.
“Enquiries completed so far suggest that the injured man may have been involved in a road traffic collision.
“We do not know at this time where the incident occurred but it is likely to have been in the Wellington Avenue area of Aldershot between the Burger King roundabout and the junction with Hospital Hill.
“Have you noticed a vehicle parked locally which has suffered damage to the front end since last Thursday night or Friday morning? Has a vehicle been abandoned in your road with damage?
“I would like to speak to the driver and passengers of a silver vehicle, possibly a Vauxhall Zafira, which stopped in the Princes Gardens car park at the time the man was found. The driver of the vehicle was described as an Asian man and there were two women in the back.
“I’d also like to speak to anyone who may have seen the injured man after 2am in Aldershot town centre."
The man is described as white, 6ft 2inches tall, of slim build and with short dark hair. He was wearing a white shirt with thin blue pinstripes and the sleeves rolled back to his forearms, light blue jeans, brown Timberland shoes and no socks. One of the shoes is still missing.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Det Con Grieve at Aldershot police station on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111. Mini-Com users can call the police on 18001 101.
