It comes after police had appealed for witnesses after a 64-year-old man was seriously injured on Fraserburgh’s Saltoun Square.
He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after an alleged assault on Sunday September 30 at around 12.20am.
After the incident, police launched an appeal for witnesses, with a spokesman saying: “Anyone who was in the area around this time and believes they may have seen anything is asked to contact police on 101, or alternatively if they wish to remain anonymous they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
