Police are ‘working to establish’ how a man in his thirties who was found in Courthouse Road last night (Wednesday) sustained serious head injuries.
The man was taken to Wexham Park Hospital before being transferred to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, and is in a serious but stable condition.
Police were called to the scene by the ambulance service at about 10pm.
The South Central Ambulance Service said it was called to reports of a 'male assaulted with a blunt instrument' at 9.44pm. A paramedic, rapid response vehicle and an ambulance attended.
The road was cordoned off this morning next to Boyn Grove Park, but a scene watch has now been lifted and the road has reopened.
A police spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police said: “Detectives are working to establish how the man sustained the injuries and anyone with any information should call police on 101.”
A witness appeal has now been launched by Thames Valley Police.
The force said the man was found injured and lying on the ground by a man and a woman.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Will Holbrook, from Force CID at Maidenhead, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who has any information about how this man came to sustain serious head injuries.
“At this stage detectives are working to establish the circumstances and I am keeping an open mind about how he came to be seriously injured.
“I would also be interested to hear from anyone who saw a man riding a silver mountain bike with a black pattern on the frame in Courthouse Road, Maidenhead, at around 9.40pm on Wednesday who may have seen how this man came off his bicycle.
“I would also be interested to speak to anyone who saw the man off his bicycle, and can assist with how he ended up on the ground.”
