Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS - Shirley Bar­tynek

Po­lice of­fi­cers are re­leas­ing im­ages of a man and a woman that they be­lieve may be able to as­sist their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a se­ri­ous as­sault which hap­pened in Mother­well on Satur­day, Septem­ber 8.

Around 9pm on the Satur­day, a 60-yearold man was stand­ing on Wind­mill­hill Street, Mother­well, near to the New Cen­tury Bar, Mother­well, when he was as­saulted and left need­ing hos­pi­tal treat­ment.

Of­fi­cers be­lieve that the man and woman shown in the im­ages here may have in­for­ma­tion that can as­sist them with their en­quiries and would ask any mem­bers of the pub­lic who recog­nise them to con­tact them.

The man is de­scribed as white, of medium to stocky build, aged be­tween 35-45 years of age, around 6ft 1in in height, with short light- coloured hair. He is shown in the im­age wear­ing a light-coloured shirt, black jacket and jeans.

The woman is de­scribed as white, aged be­tween 30-40 years of age, around 5ft 6ins in height with shoul­der-length blonde hair, and of slim build.

She is shown in the im­age wear­ing a green dress, dark jacket and car­ry­ing a small black hand­bag.

Po­lice Con­sta­ble Stephen Mor­ri­son, Wishaw Po­lice Of­fice, said: “I am ap­peal­ing to lo­cal peo­ple in the area who may have seen or heard some­thing re­lated to this in­ci­dent who per­haps didn’t re­alise the rel­e­vance at the time.

“It may not have seemed un­usual then but in the con­text of the crime tak­ing place, it could be vi­tal in­for­ma­tion which could as­sist our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“I would also ap­peal to any­one who recog­nises the man and woman shown in the im­ages, or the per­sons them­selves, to con­tact po­lice at the ear­li­est op­por­tu­nity.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to call of­fi­cers at Wishaw CID via 101, quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber 4275 of Satur­day, Septem­ber 8, 2018.
