Police have launched an appeal for information about a baseball bat attack in Angus – almost two weeks after it was “thought to have happened”.

A spokesperson said the man was assaulted by at least two other men, who struck him repeatedly with a baseball bat, causing injuries to his head and body.

The Force said it did not know “much more than this” and also couldn’t be certain exactly where the assault took place.

The statement read: “Police Scotland is appealing for information about a serious assault which is thought to have happened in the Brechin Road area of Arbroath, late in the evening of Tuesday 17th October.

“A man was assaulted by at least two other men, who struck him repeatedly with a baseball bat, causing injuries to his head and body.

“Unfortunately we do not know much more than this, and although the victim was found in Brechin Road, we cannot be certain of exactly where the assault took place.

“We appreciate that this incident happened almost two weeks ago, but it is hoped that someone would have seen some part of this incident and can give us more detail about it.”

Anyone with information should call 101 or speak to any police officer.

Information can also be given anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The reference is CR/27133/17.
