Leeds CID’s Det Sgt Amanda Wimbles said today: “This was a particularly nasty assault which has left a man in a serious condition.

“It happened on a very busy road in the centre of Leeds so a lot of people will have seen what happened either immediately before or during the incident.

“I would appeal directly to anyone who hasn’t yet come forward with information to do so straight away.”
