A man is still be­ing treated for se­ri­ous head in­juries af­ter he was at­tacked in Kirkcaldy at the week­end.

The 24-year-old was taken to the West­ern Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal in Ed­in­burgh fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent in Ar­ran Cres­cent in the early hours of Satur­day.

The as­sault is thought to have in­volved a num­ber of peo­ple, but po­lice said ru­mours that a firearm had been used were not cor­rect.

There was also no sug­ges­tion the vic­tim had been stabbed.

Part of Ar­ran Cres­cent, near the junc­tion with Lis­more Av­enue in the Tem­ple­hall area of the town, was cor­doned off for much of Satur­day as of­fi­cers con­ducted in­quiries.

A spokesman for Po­lice Scot­land said: “Po­lice in Fife are in­ves­ti­gat­ing fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous as­sault in Kirkcaldy.

“The in­ci­dent hap­pened around 12.20am on Satur­day April 14 in Ar­ran Cres­cent.

“A 24-year-old man sus­tained in­juries to his head dur­ing the at­tack and was taken to the West­ern Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal in Ed­in­burgh where he con­tin­ues to be treated.

“In­quiries are on­go­ing to trace those re­spon­si­ble and any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Kirkcaldy CID via 101 and quote in­ci­dent num­ber 096 of April 14. Al­ter­na­tively, an anony­mous re­port can be made to the char­ity Crimestop­pers on 0800 555111.”
