Whilst on High Street, near to Harris Amusements, the victim was struck by an unknown person from behind, causing him to fall to the ground.

He was then punched in the face and kicked to the ribs and right shoulder, resulting in a broken collar bone.

The suspect had dark hair and is believed to have spoken with a Scottish accent.

Officers would like to trace two men who assisted the victim after the incident and were present when an ambulance arrived. In addition, officers would like to identify and speak to another important potential witness to this incident.

The male was white and was walking a large black dog, possibly a German Shepherd.

He was wearing a distinctive “Donkey style” jacket, with an orange coloured shoulder section, possibly with the letters “NCB” on the rear.
