A pool of blood was found on a Sheffield street today after a man suffered a head injury during a row.
Police officers were called to Waingate in Sheffield city centre at 9.50am and discovered a 45-year-old man with a head injury.
A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said he is understood to have sustained the head wound during ‘an altercation’.
