Police have released CCTV images of a man they wish to trace in connection with an assault which took place in West Richmond Street around 8.10pm on Thursday 20th June, when a 47-year-old man was struck on the head.

Detectives are keen to speak to a man described as white, in his thirties, of medium build, with short dark hair and dark stubble.

He is pictured wearing a blue t-shirt with white detail, navy workman trousers, with white fluorescent bands at the bottom of each leg and black work boots.

“The victim attended hospital, where he was found to have sustained a serious injury, and an investigation has been ongoing since this time.

“We’re keen to trace the man in the images as part of our enquiries and would urge anyone who may recognise him, or the man himself if he sees this appeal, to contact us.”
