The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses af­ter a woman was at­tacked by a group of men in Kirk­caldy.

The 17-year-old was tar­geted by four men on Dun­nikier Road at around 10pm on Fri­day night.

While the woman did not sus­tain any in­juries in the at­tack, De­tec­tive Sergeant Cal­lum Lawrie said that the vic­tim had been left “shaken and up­set”.

Po­lice say that they are now keen to trace a pass­ing mo­torist they be­lieve may hold vi­tal in­for­ma­tion to what hap­pened.

Mr Lawrie added: “The vic­tim has re­ported that she was walk­ing on Dun­nikier Road, near the rail­way bridge at the junc­tion of Vic­to­ria Road, when she was as­saulted.

“She has de­scribed her at­tack­ers as four men, all aged in their early to mid-20s, and of mus­cu­lar build.

“One in­di­vid­ual in par­tic­u­lar is de­scribed as 5’8” tall with short dark hair and wear­ing a black T-shirt and blue denim jeans.

“They were seen to walk off to­wards the town cen­tre.

“In ad­di­tion, we are specif­i­cally ap­peal­ing for a woman who came to the as­sis­tance of the vic­tim and was driv­ing a red car, pos­si­bly a Vaux­hall, to con­tact us as soon as pos­si­ble.

“We would ap­peal for any per­son that was in the area of Dun­nikier Road last night and who might have seen this group of men be­fore or af­ter this in­ci­dent to con­tact the po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent ref no 4358 of July 28.”
