Appeal over alleged serious assault in Elgin

A PUBLIC APPEAL has been issued following a serious assault in the Bridge Street area of Elgin earlier this month.

Police Scotland say they would like to hear from witnesses to an incident that happened at around midnight on Saturday, March 18/19 close to the Rising Sun Bar. A 21-year-old sustained facial injuries in the incident.

PC Lawrence Ramsay, from the Divisional Alcohol & Violence Reduction Unit (DAVRU), said: “This appears to have been a completely unprovoked attack on a young man who required treatment at Dr Gray’s Hospital for his injuries.

“We have been carrying out CCTV and house-to-house enquiries and would like to appeal to any member of the public who was in the area at the time, or anyone who knows anything about this incident, to please contact us.

“In particular, we want to trace a white man aged in his 20’s, described as wearing a green T-shirt and grey jeans who was last seen heading in the direction of Lamb Street.

“Anyone with information can call Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
