Police in Fife have released CCTV images of a man they wish to trace as part of an investigation into a number of assaults.

The first incident took place at around 11.50pm on Saturday, February 6 at Tappie Toories public house, Kirkgate, Dunfermline during which a 38-year-old man sustained a facial injury and required medical treatment.

Two further incidents occurred on the same date near LIFE Nightclub, Kirkgate and near The Brasshouse, Carnegie Drive, also Dunfermline.

Officers believe that the man pictured within the CCTV images may be able to assist them with their investigation and would ask anyone who recognises him to come forward.

He is described as 35-45-years-old, 5ft 7-10in tall and of medium build. He has short brown hair and a tattoo on the right side of his neck.

At the time of the incidents, he was wearing jeans, a dark t-shirt which was possibly a football shirt, a dark-coloured zip jacket that was open at the front, and white trainers.

Sergeant Neil McGurk of Dunfermline said: “These were unprovoked attacks and we are continuing with our inquiries to trace the suspect.

“The man pictured is of interest to our investigation and anyone who can help us establish his identity is urged to contact police immediately.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact the charity Crimestoppers in complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
