AN injured man was found in some woods at a playing field this morning.

Police are appealing for witnesses after a member of the public found the man in a wooded area of Three Bridges Recreation Ground at about 8am.

Police said the man has been taken to hospital with wounds to his leg and buttock.

The Argus:

Officers attended the scene and a section of the field has been cordoned off to enable forensics investigations to take place, and to determine whether any offences have been committed.

Photos from the scene show a tent and officers guarding the area, as well as what appears to be items of clothing on the grass.
