A PENSIONER has had his wallet stolen on an Aberdeen street – while he was on the ground after a fall.
The 71-year-old man had fallen on the public steps between Farquhar Road and Girdleness Road in Torry and suffered a serious leg injury.
And while he was lying injured he had his wallet, containing a mid three-figure sum of cash, stolen.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “A man, described as being in his 30s, stopped and instead of helping the man took his wallet.”
The incident happened at around 7.30pm yesterday.
The man is described as being white, around 5ft 10ins tall, and of average build.
He was wearing a white crew neck jumper and blue jeans.
The elderly gentleman was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by ambulance to be treated for his injuries.
Any with any information should contact Police Scotland on 101.
