TWO men have been badly hurt on Huddersfield's streets.
One man suffered a serious head injury in Almondbury - but it is a mystery so far as to how he came to be so seriously injured.
The other man was found suffering from a serious chest injury in Huddersfield town centre. Police believe he was attacked.
The two incidents are entirely separate.
In the Almondbury incident, a 19-year-old man was found staggering in the Highlands Avenue area at 10.45pm last night.
He was undergoing surgery today, but police are not disclosing which hospital is treating him. He is said to be seriously ill.
Det Con Russ Conlon, of Kirklees Police intelligence unit, said: "He was found in the street and helped to a house where an ambulance was called.
"We would like to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area last night."
In the other incident, a 37-year-old man was badly wounded.
The man was found in the middle of Cross Church Street, between the Kingsgate centre and the junction with Kirkgate, just after 6.40pm on Monday and it is thought he had been attacked somewhere on that stretch of road.
The man had suffered a serious chest injury and police are now anxious to trace witnesses to find out what happened.
A police spokeswoman said: "It is believed the injuries were inflicted by an unknown weapon.
"The man was taken to hospital where he is currently in a stable condition.
"There are a number of pubs in the area and the centre of town is well frequented at that time of night."
