Detectives in Inverness are appealing for information after a 56-year-old man was robbed.

The robbery took place around 6.40am on Tuesday, November 21 in the car park at Hilton Village, Hilton. He was robbed of his mobile phone, wallet, and keys.

Detective Constable Craig McFarlane of CID said: “Fortunately the man wasn’t seriously injured during the robbery but was left evidently shaken.

“We are seeking the help of the public to trace the man responsible. He is described as aged 35-40 years, between 5’ 10” and 6” foot in height, with short hair and wearing dark clothing.

“Extensive enquiries are ongoing, including reviewing CCTV and carrying out door-to-door enquiries.

“Around the same time, we received calls of anti-social behaviour within the Hilton Housing Estate, and we are keeping an open mind as to whether the incidents are linked.

“I would ask those who were in the area at the time to contact police if they have any information that could assist with our investigation.

“If you noticed anyone matching this description or have possible dashcam footage of the area, please get in touch with us.

“We can be contacted on 101 quoting incident number 0520 of Tuesday, 21 November, 2023."
