Two charged after man attacked in North-east town

Two people have been charged after a man was attacked in a North-east town.

Police in Elgin are looking to speak to a member of the public who stopped and assisted the victim on Saturday in Elgin.

The witness is believed to have been driving a black pick-up truck after the attack on South College Street.

A 36-year-old man was assaulted by another man at around 9am when he was walking alongside the A96 in the South College Street and East Road area.

The man was uninjured as a result of the incident but left shaken.

A 25-year-old man and a 20 year-old woman have been charged in relation to the incident and others relating to it and are expected to appear at Elgin Sheriff Court today.

PC Brian Donaldson from the Elgin Divisional Alcohol and Violence Reduction Unit said: “A 25-year-old man has been charged in relation to this incident. However we are keen to speak with a man who stopped to see if the victim was OK shortly after the assault happened.

“The member of the public who stopped is believed to have been driving a black pick-up truck.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference CF0174700617 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
