Dog walker could be key to po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Bank­foot at­tack

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Po­lice are hunt­ing two men who at­tacked a man out­side his Perthshire home.

The vic­tim, who is in his 20s, was ap­proached by the men in Church Lane, Bank­foot on Mon­day evening.

He was badly beaten and left with se­ri­ous in­juries to his face, hand and body. The at­tack hap­pened at 5.45pm.

Po­lice Scot­land said in­ves­ti­ga­tors were fol­low­ing a pos­i­tive line of in­quiry, but wanted to trace a woman who was walk­ing her dog nearby.

A spokesman said: “We are keen to speak to the fe­male dog walker, who may have seen some or all of what hap­pened.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion has been urged to call po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
