Police have released images of a man they want to talk to after a serious assault in the city centre last year, which saw the victim have part of his ear bitten off.

The 24-year-old victim was attacked on Greenside Place at the roundabout with London Road at around 9.30pm on Sunday 21st December.

Detectives are keen to trace the man in the CCTV photos who was seen to be in the area at the time of the assault.

Anyone who recognises him is asked to contact police immediately.

Detective Constable Carole Sneddon said: “The victim suffered an extremely painful ear injury which will leave him disfigured for life.

“The male pictured is believed to be of significance to our investigation and anyone who can assist in tracing him is asked to come forward.

Similarly we would ask this male to get in touch with police themselves and help with our investigation.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers in complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
