Police Scotland is appealing for information after a 53-year-old man was seriously assaulted at Castlehill Road,…
Constable Jamie Barclay said: “Although this incident happened several weeks ago, it has only just been brought to the attention of the police.
“No matter the time span, we will always investigate.
“The man who sustained this attack has been left with significant life-changing injuries and therefore it is vital we find the person responsible.
“Anyone who was in the area, and who may remember seeing or hearing anything, no matter how insignificant it may have seemed at the time, is urged to come forward.
“It is believed that the man walked from Green Road to High Street shortly after being assaulted and would have had visible injuries – do you remember seeing him?
“If you have dash-cam footage or personal security cameras that may have captured anything, we would also ask you to check and give this to the Police.”
Information can be shared with police by dialling 101, or anonymous reports can be issued through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
