A PENSIONER was left with a fractured skull after an incident in Southampton.

Police are tracking a man with vital information on how the 71-year-old was seriously injured in Park Road, Freemantle, Southampton.

At around 11.30pm on Tuesday, July 29, the pensioner was seen in an argument with a man described as black, aged 20-25-years-old, around 6ft tall, well built and wearing a black and red hoodie, dark jeans and a hat with red detailing.

The man, who spoke with a London accent, left the scene before an ambulance arrived and took the pensioner to Southampton General Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

Anyone with information should contact DC Dan Farrell at Shirley Police Station on 101 quoting 44140272685 or via hampshire.police.uk/internet/do-it-online/online-forms/message-for-officer.html.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Guess that should read tracing the attacker rather than tracking. I hope the victim makes a full recovery and the attacker is found and dealt with very very quickly.

Although very soon there will be people defending their home town by saying the usual 'This happens everywhere', and 'It's really not that bad' rubbish, it has totally gone to the dogs. (As a friend recently put it, referring to the latest rape not too long ago).

I moved away a few months ago but i still regularly read the echo as a reminder of how lucky i feel to have finally left.

Another friend of mine works in the A&E department at the S.G.H and there are a hell of alot more (Inceasing), Incidents happening that people don't always hear about, and it makes me so sad to have called this place my home.

Good luck Ex-Sotonions,
It aint going to get any better.

I live in southampton but work in a different city and my job involves dealing with the crime side if life.....trust me, southampton is nothing compared to other cities. You just have a naive approach and probably also have a chip on your shoulder

Predictable response number one as mentioned earlier.

Southampton turning into a **** hole has nothing to do with comparing it with worse off places, but of noticing how terrible the place has become.

Those who don't / Can't see this fact is probably more naive in all truth.

My Ex- job involved witnessing the scum of Southampton for over ten years, crime being the biggest part of it, which is why now i've left i can see
what the place has become.

As your job doesn't even involve the area we're talking about you don't really have much of a point.

I do as I worked there too, only left a few months ago :) and trust me my job lets me see the underworld of life (crime) and soton is not that bad at all. Of course there is crime, you have to be stupid to think there won't be. Soton is also a city so you can expect more crime but that doesn't mean it's a bad place to be?? If you hate it so much why do you even read the echo? Go and be gone with and take that big chip on your shoulder with you

Your misunderstanding (again) and irrelavance to what's being said is no wonder you're not very observant to your surroundings.

What are you a P.C.S.O?

There are a thousand better and worse places than Southampton and a city as big as Southampton is bound to have crime as everywhere.
But that isn't what this is about is it?

Read what you first replied to to save me repeating myself to your other questions and try to understand it this time please.

Living in Southampton all my life i can see what the place has become in the last few years.
Some of us have seen what areas have turned into where we have young family, growing up there and feel upset for them not knowing what the future will hold.

As i have said already, i have gone but i still read what latest tragedy has happened back there and how people like you are oblivious to what's happening which is part of the problem in itself.

No chips on shoulders as there is no more weight to carry.
