POLICE SEEK WITNESSES
Police seek witnesses after a man was assaulted near King George V Park at around 2pm on Saturday 25 April.
The victim was verbally abused in the park by 4 men, who accused him of taking their photograph. They followed him through the Rodney Street tunnel, continuing to shout, before demanding money, then racially abusing and assaulting him at the Tesco end.
They ran off through the tunnel when Tesco staff came to the victim’s aid.
Police Scotland say: ‘Suspect One is white, in his early 20s, around 6 ft tall with a slim build. He was wearing a black hooded jacket with white lining and black jeans.
‘Suspect Two is black, in his early 20s around 5 ft 4 inches in height with a muscular build. He was wearing a black hooded top, blue jeans and dark coloured gloves.
‘Suspect Three is white, in his early 20s, around 5 ft 10 inches in height with a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded top and blue jeans.
‘Suspect Four is black, in his early 20s, around 5 ft 6 inches in height and wearing a dark coloured puffer jacket.’
