Investigating Officer Constable Graham Crawford, of the Divisional Alcohol Violence Reduction Unit, said: “Police Scotland is following up positive lines of enquiry in relation to the male responsible and have identified a number of witnesses and victims, however we have been unable to identify and trace this outstanding injured male.
“I would appeal to anyone who knows who this man is, or the man himself, to come forward and contact the Police as a matter of urgency.
“These appear to be unprovoked and unjustified incidents, and it goes without saying that assaults of this nature can have a significant impact on the life of the victim. I would also like to reassure the public that these incidents appear to be isolated, and stress that we are following up several positive lines of enquiry.
“I would urge anyone with any information at all to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
