Police Appealing for information after a serious assult in Ayr


Police Scotland is appealing for information from the media and the public following a serious assault in Ayr on Saturday 17 February 2018.

Around 11.10 pm yesterday evening, a 30 year-old man was walking along Limonds Wynd, near to Kings Court in Ayr with his wife when he encountered three young males by an underpass.

After a short conversation the three males then started to punch the man to the ground.

Another three males then appeared, with two of them also beginning to punch and kick the 30 year-old man.

The injured man was taken to Ayr Hospital where he is being treated.

The first three suspects are described as being white and 16-18 years old. One was wearing a grey tracksuit, another a black tracksuit with a burgundy top and the other was wearing a hat.

The second three suspects are described as being white and 19-20 years old. One of them was wearing a hat and tracksuit bottoms.

Detective Constable Paul McRoberts, Ayr CID, said:

“This was a violent attack on a man who had been walking home with his wife. We are still unsure what the motive was behind the incident and our officers have been checking CCTV and speaking to those in the local community to try and trace those responsible.

“Think back, were you in the area at the time before, during or after the attack? Did you see a group of males matching the descriptions standing about the underpass, or running from the scene?

“We would urge anyone with any information to come forward and contact us.”

Anyone with any information should contact Ayr Police Office via 101, quoting incident number 4714 of Saturday 17 February 2018. Alternatively you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
