A man was taken to hospital after being robbed in Inverness on Sunday.

Two men attacked the 58-year-old victim and stole money and personal items from him.

Police are appealing for information following the assault in Nelson Street at around 1.15pm.

Officers said one of the suspects was around 30 years old, with dark hair, wearing a red t-shirt and blue jeans. They described the other man as being older, with a shaved head, wearing a beige jacket and blue jeans – he was last seen in the Grant Street area.

Detective Sergeant Steven Mackenzie said: "This crime resulted in serious injuries to the vulnerable victim, requiring hospital treatment.

"We are asking anyone who may have been in the area around the time and seen either the incident itself, or the men in question, to please get in touch."

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 2130 of July 12 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.
