Armadale Detectives are currently working to establish the events that led to the man being unconscious and on the side of Barrett Street.

About 6.20am Thursday, a member of the public located the man about 2-3m off the side of the road and called police.

Police attended and St John Ambulance was called; he was taken to Armadale Hospital where it was established he had a fractured skull and possible bleeding on the brain.

He has since been taken to Royal Perth Hospital where he is in a serious but stable condition.

The man was wearing black pants and T-shirt, a black leather jacket, black baseball cap and may have been riding a silver mountain bike.
