The 19-year-old vic­tim was walk­ing along South Street, Perth, at around 2.45am on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 10 when he was as­saulted by a man.

The per­pe­tra­tor was part of a group of five or six men.

Of­fi­cers would like to speak to a man in con­nec­tion with the mat­ter.

He is de­scribed as be­ing 20 to 30 years old, of stocky build, and was wear­ing a grey top.

A po­lice spokes­woman said of­fi­cers were ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent.

She said: “Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion that may be use­ful should con­tact Tay­side Divi­sion on 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber CR/3802/17, or speak to any po­lice of­fi­cer.

“Al­ter­na­tively, in­for­ma­tion can be passed on anony­mously via the char­ity Crimestop­pers on 0800 555111.”
