Police are continuing to investigate after a 44-year-old woman was found with serious head injuries in a North-east street.
The woman was found with unexplained injuries on Woodside Terrace, Elgin, at around 5am yesterday and officers are appealing to anyone who was in the area around that time to contact police.
Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said: “We understand that the woman was making her way to work and at this time there would have been people about either walking or driving into work.
“In particular we would appeal to anyone who was in the area around 5am and may have dash cam footage from their car to contact us. We would ask that anyone who was in the Newmill Road, Pansport Road or South Lesmurdie areas of Elgin get in touch with us.
“The woman remains in hospital in a serious condition and our enquiries continue to establish how she came to be injured. We are following a number of lines of enquiry one of which is that she may have been assaulted.”
The woman is described as having fair hair and is of average build. She was wearing a light coloured jacket, blue jeans, brown boots and had a black handbag with her.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 0354 of 26 October or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
