Police in Aberdeen are renewing appeals for information over two incidents which left men with serious injuries in the city earlier this month.
One was a disturbance on Jute Street, which happened within a property around 9.30pm on January 9.
Two men – aged 25 and 24 – were taken to hospital for treatment afterwards with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
The other incident happened around 10pm on January 6 on North Balnagask Road in the Torry area.
A 25-year-old man suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries. The incident happened on the street and involved a number of others.
Police say they have carried out extensive inquiries into the two incidents, which they don’t believe are linked.
Detective Inspector Jackie Knight of Aberdeen CID said: “Our investigations into both these incidents are ongoing and I am again urging anyone with information relating to either to come forward.
“Extensive inquiries have been carried out at both locations, including door-to-door work and examining CCTV.
“I would like to thank both communities for their understanding and patience while we have carried out this work.
“Incidents such as these are uncommon in Aberdeen and I would reassure people that every effort is being put into identifying those responsible.
“I must stress that we are not linking these two incidents but would be keen to hear from anyone who may be able to assist either of our investigations.”
Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
