Police Seeks Witnesses To Unprovoked Attack On 65 Year Old Man In Annan

Police Scotland is seeking witnesses to an assault which took place on the Newbie footpath in Annan, between the Millennium Bridge and the Annan Road Bridge on Sunday 18 June 2017.

Sometime between 1530 hours and 1545 hours on Sunday, a 65 year old man from Newbie was walking on the path when he was assaulted in what appears to be an unprovoked attack by another man.

The victim was knocked to the ground and suffered an eye injury as a result. The assailant is described as being a male in his 20s, about 6′ tall, short hair and was wearing a grey t-shirt and tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

Constable Victoria Urwin at Annan said “this appears to have been a totally unprovoked attack on a man making his way along the path. We are keen to trace another man who helped the victim to his feet after the attack. He is described as being in his 30s and wore glasses and a blue t-shirt. Anyone who can help us catch the man responsible for this attack is asked to call police at Annan on the 101 number.
