A dog walker was racially abused and physically assaulted by a man who was out with two children on Boxing Day in Fife.

The incident happened around 3.40pm on Thursday near the old railway bridge on Gallows Loan, also known locally as The Grange, in Blairhall.

The suspect was wearing motorcycle gear including a jacket, trousers, gloves and boots which were all of a dark colour.

He also had a green and yellow motorcycle helmet.

The man was aged around 35 to 45, about 5ft 10ins, of slim build with short dark hair and stubble, and spoke with a local Fife accent.

The two children, also wearing motorcycle gear, were around 11 and nine years old.

Despite the assault, police said the 55-year-old, who was walking his dog, was not injured.

Sergeant Gordon Cameron said: “We are trying to establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident so if anyone has any information relating to this or witnessed the incident, please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101
