Detectives investigating an attack which left a man in a critical condition are looking for a man and woman who were in the area a few minutes before.

Dean Armitage, aged 49, of Skiers View Road, Hoyland, Barnsley, was assaulted outside his home in the early hours of Sunday, July 21.

He suffered serious head injures and is still in Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

Police want a man and woman, who were arguing as they walked along Skiers View moments before to come forward.

David Matthew Sindall, 33, of Selborne Street, Eastwood, has been charged with burglary and causing grievous bodily harm. He is due at Sheffield Crown Court on August 8.
