The 20-year-old was in the Cumming Street area when he was assaulted at 1.30am on Sunday.
He was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital and treated for a facial injury.
Officers are trying to trace a man in his mid 20’s in connection with inquiries. He is described as white and around 5ft 11ins tall with dark hair and dark stubble. He was wearing a black jacket with a white logo or stripe, dark jeans and white trainers.

“We are particularly keen to speak to three men who came to the aide of the injured man.
“I would urge anyone with information about this incident to get in touch as soon as possible by calling Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous, quoting reference number CF0138410619.”
