A 10-year-old boy has been arrested over the death of a 79-year-old man who suffered a head injury in Leeds, police have said.

The man was found lying in the street in Back Hill Top Avenue, Harehills, on Sunday evening, a West Yorkshire Police spokesman said.

He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

A police spokesman said the boy remained in custody on Monday.

It is understood the dead man lived in the street where the incident happened. He is yet to be formally identified, police said.

Results of a post-mortem examination are expected to be released later.
'Shocked'

Liaqat Ali, manager of the Abubakar supermarket on nearby Roundhay Road, said the victim was a regular customer and he had seen him on Sunday.

He said: "The old gentleman used to come to the shop all the time, God rest his soul.

"I saw the old man walking around yesterday afternoon, but I didn't speak to him. He was quite well known in the area.

"Everyone's surprised that this has happened. I'm shocked they've arrested a little kid."

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to contact the police.


Just a little something to darken your day.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
