Police call for witnesses after a 25-year-old man was found unconscious with head injuries in Notodden Saturday night. The extent of the damage is unknown.

– He was rushed to the emergency room, where he was immediately transferred to hospital. We assume he is turned down, said operations leader Vidar Aaltvedt in South-East police to the news agency NTB.
Passersby found the man lying unconscious in a pool of blood at Skogveien at 2.30 am.
– There was found a bike nearby, but we see no trace of him that is consistent with that he has run over by the bicycle , says Aaltvedt.
He has injuries to the head and face. The condition of the man is not known.
– We have tried to talk to him, but he is very groggy and remembers nothing of the incident. His injuries were concentrated in the head area – there was no visible damage elsewhere on the body, said operation manager for TV2 news.
Police are now calling for witnesses to the incident.
