Police appeal after alleged indecent assault

TWO MEN who were involved in an incident with a 31-year-old woman at Morrisons in Hume Street are being sought by police in Arbroath.

The lady had been standing outside the store near to the cash point machines between 7 and 7.30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, when both men approached and one of them indecently assaulted her.

Shocked but unhurt she returned to the store where her partner was still shopping and told him about the incident. An altercation took place between the parties and the two men left soon after.

Both men are in their 20s. The first is about five feet six inches tall, slim and has dark brown hair. He wore a shirt, jacket and jeans. The other man is about five feet eight inches tall, stocky and has brown hair.

Officers want to trace these men and would appeal to anyone who was shopping in Morrison’s on that evening and who saw these men or anyone who knows who they are, to contact 0300 111 2222, or speak to any officer.

Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
