10:47am 10th December 2012

Detectives from West Yorkshire Police have launched a murder enquiry in Leeds after a man was fatally injured in an attack in the early hours of yesterday morning. The man is believed to be from Tadcaster.

The Homicide and Major Enquiry Team from West Yorkshire are appealing for witnesses to the incident which they say took place near to the Leeds Grand Theatre on the junction of Harrison Street and New Briggate at around 2am on Sunday December 9.

Police say they were called to the scene by Paramedics following reports a man had been assaulted by a white male who was in a group of three, and had fallen to the ground suffering serious head injuries.

The victim, say West Yorkshire Police, a 28-year-old man from North Yorkshire, was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where he later died.

West Yorkshire Police say enquiries have been ongoing at the scene by Detectives and Scenes of Crime Officers this morning.

Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Simon Atkinson of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “This has now become a murder enquiry in which a 28-year-old man has tragically died after being assaulted in the city centre by a white man who was in a group of three.

“We have witnesses and are progressing good lines of enquiry including CCTV this morning so my message to those involved is very simple.  It would be better for you to come in now and speak to us before we knock on your doors.”

He added: “Two of the group are believed to be their late teens or early 20s and all made off towards the Headrow.

“Those men or anyone who saw a group of three men acting suspiciously or leaving the area shortly after 2am should contact the Police.

“Information can be given to the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team on the 101 number, referencing Police log 179 or anonymously to CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111."
