A security guard was savagely beaten and left lying seriously injured for hours after a brutal attack at a Brierley Hill factory.
The guard, aged 73, was attacked after he challenged a man found near the factory office yesterday afternoon. The attack happened at Stoke Forgings, a steel components manufacturing plant, based off Vine Street, at around 1pm. Police say the guard was hit numerous times, leaving him with serious head injuries. He was only discovered by a colleague starting work later at around 7pm. He remains in a critical condition in hospital today. The factory unit has been sealed off by officers while forensic inquiries take place. Detective Inspector Colin Mattinson from Force CID said: The security guard is currently detained in a critical condition in hospital. “This was a sustained and violent attack on an elderly man. “We believe he challenged a man found inside the premises which led to the unprovoked attack taking place.
Enquiries are continuing and we are studying CCTV and carrying our forensic investigations at the scene. “We are still trying to establish what the man was doing inside the premises and what, if anything was stolen. I would ask anyone who saw anything in the Vine Street area yesterday or anyone who has knowledge of this attack to call us as soon as possible on 101 or call Crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 555 111.
Patrols have been stepped up in the area after the attack.
