A MAN was left with serious injuries after being hit by a car in an apparent targeted attack in Ravensthorpe.

Police were called to Field Street, off North Road, on Sunday at 4.46pm where officers found the man, in his 30s, with what is thought to be a serious head injury.

It is believed he was hit by a white BMW X5 car which then failed to stop.

There were suggestions from local people that there may have been an altercation before the man was struck by the car.

Det Insp Diane Johnson, of Kirklees District CID, said: “We are appealing for witnesses to this incident in which we believe suspects in the car drove at the victim who was targeted by them.

“He was seriously injured but is in a stable condition, and we are conducting enquiries to build a fuller picture regarding the nature of this incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference 1319026607.
