Police Scotland has appealed for witnesses after a 43-year-old man was assaulted in the Main Street area of Turriff at around 2am on Sunday, 11 October, 2015, by three men.
The man was found near to the Nickel & Dime shop on Main St by a passer by. He suffered facial injuries as a result of the incident and was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment.
PC Craig Milne of the Divisional Violence Reduction Unit said
At the time of the incident, the town centre would have been busy with people who had been at local licensed premises and I would ask anyone who has any information to contact the Police.
Anybody with any information regarding this incident or had seen any persons that may be linked to the assault are urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
