Police Scotland is appealing for information following a serious assault in Stonehaven.

Officers received reports of an altercation in the Cameron Street area at around 11.30pm on Saturday March 25, whereby a 19-year-old man sustained a serious facial injury which required hospital treatment. It is understood at least five men were involved, aged around 18 to 20. Anyone with information contact Police on 101.

Constable Kerri Johnston, of the Divisional Alcohol Violence Reduction Unit, said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Allardice Street or Cameron Street at the time and saw anything to please contact police. It would have been busy around the time in question with people out for the night and it could be you saw something which could help.

“It’s understood the altercation started in the Allardice Street/ Cameron Street area near to the Queen’s Hotel before spilling into the rear car park at Farmfoods. One man has been seriously injured as a result and extensive CCTV and house-to-house enquiries are underway.

“Anyone with information should contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
