POLICE have launched an appeal for information after a man was taken to hospital after a “serious” assault on Sunday.

The incident occurred on Harrison Terrace in the early hours of the morning on May 15.

Officers are now particularly keen to speak to a woman who found the victim in the Denes area and drove him to Darlington Memorial Hospital at around 5.30am that morning.

The Northern Echo:

The car used to take the victim to hospital is believed to be a black Mercedes A class.

If you believe this could be you, please contact PC Lynsey Quinn, from Darlington CID on 101 or email Lynsey.Quinn@durham.police.uk.
