GARDAI have launched an investigation after a young man was found unconscious and bloody on a street in Wexford.

The man, who is believed to be in his late 20s, was found on St Michael’s Place at approximately 9.30pm.

It is understood he was the victim of a vicious assault and may have suffered serious head injuries.

Blood stains could be seen on the footpath where the man was found.

He was rushed to Wexford General Hospital but later transferred to Beaumont in Dublin where he was described as being in a serious condition.

Officers from the Garda Technical Bureau carried out a detailed forensic analysis of the area last night.

“We’re investigating all the circumstances at the moment but we’re not treating it as an attack at the moment,” a source explained.

“He’s in hospital, so obviously he’s not able to assist us. But at the moment we’re not treating it as an assault.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Gorey Garda station on (053) 9421222.
