Police Scotland Officers in Aberdeen are appealing for witnesses following a report of an assault on a 13 year old boy in the Rosehill Drive area of Aberdeen.
The incident happened at approximately 18:25 on Sunday, 20 January 2019, near to the TSB Bank on Rosehill Drive.
As a result the 13-year-old boy, who had been in the company of other youths, received minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment.
Police are looking to trace a man in connection with the incident who may be able to assist with enquiries. He is understood to have been the passenger in a small silver car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa or similar, with a registration which began with SV55. Both the man and the boy were seen to run across Rosehill Drive.
The man is described as being aged in his 30's and roughly 5 foot 11 inches in height with a stocky build and with short dark hair. He was wearing dark clothing.
The vehicle left the scene in the direction of Rowan Road.
Enquiry officer PC Niall Sutherland for Police Scotland said:
“The boy has not been seriously injured however this has understandably been an upsetting incident."
“The area would have been busy with traffic and pedestrians at the time and I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or saw the vehicle to get in contact with us on 101 quoting reference number CF0016030119."
"Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Officers in Buckie are ongoing with efforts to trace missing person, Alan Morrison, who was last seen on Christmas Eve (2018).
The 47-year-old was reported missing to Police Scotland on Friday 11 January 2019, after his family raised concerns they had not seen or heard from him in more than two weeks.
Enquiries have been ongoing in the vicinity of his home at Lawson Place to establish his last movements, with searches also launched in the area by specialist teams.
Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said:
“To help with our searches I’m asking people who live in Buckie to check their gardens, sheds and any outbuildings to make sure that Alan hasn’t taken shelter. In addition if you are out walking in the area please keep an eye out for any sign of activity. Searches will be carried out by specialist teams in particular focusing on the Burn Of Buckie, however simple checks and vigilance could help us greatly. All I ask is that you don’t put yourself in any danger.”
DI Stevenson added:
"It has been more than three weeks now since Alan was last seen and we have yet to receive any positive sightings of him since Christmas Eve. It is extremely concerning that he wasn’t in touch with his family over the festive period, in particular Christmas Day, and as more time passes our concerns for him understandably grow."
“Alan was last seen at his home on Christmas Eve but wasn’t there when his family checked on him on Christmas Day therefore he must have left that night. Did you see him that evening? Or do you have dash-cam footage of the area which may have captured him? I appreciate this footage may be wiped by now but if you do have information which could assist please let us know.”
Alan is described as being around 5 foot 9 inches in height, of a medium build with short dark and grey receding hair and a beard.
It is believed he is to be wearing black Adidas Samba trainers, a long-sleeved dark T-shirt, a navy padded jacket and could also be wearing a beanie hat and gloves.
He is also a heavy smoker.
Anyone with information should call Police on 101 quoting ref. no. 2636 of Friday 11 January 2019.
