POLICE investigating an assault in the city centre have released a CCTV image as they appealed for information.

The incident happened at around 3.45am on April 21, on the West Approach Road near to Canning Lane.

Detective Constable Mark Seymour said: “The incident appears to have started at a taxi rank outside the Sheraton Hotel, and continued on to the West Approach Road.

“The area was busy with people making their way home after a night out who may have witnessed part or all of the disturbance.

“We believe the man was with three friends, who may be able to provide information on the circumstances surrounding the incident.”

Anyone who may recognise the man in the image or may have information about the incident is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
