Police are continuing to appeal for information after reports of an assault and robbery in a North-east town.

A man in his 40s suffered minor injuries during the incident, which took place in a property on Gray Street in Fraserburgh in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A firearm was also allegedly discharged, causing damage to the property.

Police have confirmed that a 44-year-old woman is due to appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court today in connection with the incident.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace a number of other people who were believed to have been at the property during the early hours of Sunday morning.

Detective Inspector Stewart Drummond, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have been and will be carrying out house-to-house inquiries today as our investigation progresses, and I would ask anyone with information to please let our officers know.

“Even if you think your information is insignificant and not worth passing on, I would ask that you let us make that judgement.

“I must stress that from the outset this has been treated as an isolated, contained incident that would have posed no threat to the wider public.

“Further searches may be carried out and you may notice an increased police presence in certain areas as we investigate a number of lines of inquiry.

“Thank you to those who have assisted so far and I would urge anyone else with information, or who may have been in the Gray Street area at the time of the incident and saw anything unusual, to please contact police as soon as possible on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
