Police have released CCTV of men they want to identify in connection with an assault and robbery on York Place in the early hours of Sunday 7th December.

The incident happened around 3.05am when a 22-year-old man and a 21-year-old man were walking on York Place, just west of the Conan Doyle pub.

The men were both punched to the ground and the suspects took the 22-year-old victim’s jacket before making off on foot, heading east along York Place.

Police are now looking to speak with the males who are seen in the images.

One of the men in the CCTV images is described as white, mid twenties, 5ft 10 in tall, stocky build, short light brown hair and wearing a bright pink jumper and dark trousers.

There are two other men who are seen in the footage. The first man is described as white, slim build, 5ft 9in, 20 to 25 years old, with short dark gelled hair, wearing a black jacket.

The second man is described as white, medium build, 5ft 10in, 20 to 30 years old, with short dark hair, wearing a brown blazer, black t-shirt and dark trousers.

Detective Constable Stevie Herd said: “This was a completely unprovoked assault and robbery and anyone who recognises the men in these images is asked to contact police on 101”.

Anyone who has information should contact Police on 101.
