A man was taken to hospital after being assaulted and robbed by a gang in Peebles.
The 36-year-old victim was in Victoria Park near football pitches when he was approached by a gang of teens around the ages of 14 to 18 between 6pm and 7pm on Saturday.
Police say an altercation took place before the man was assaulted and had his wallet stolen.
He was later taken by ambulance to Borders General Hospital and was later discharged.
Officers from Galashiels CID are appealing for information.
In a statement, the force said: “The youths involved are all believed to be between 14 and 18 years. At this time, we don’t have any further description, however, from our enquiries so far we believe that they had been in Victoria Park for some time causing a nuisance and approaching older members of the public to buy drink for them.
“There was a funfair in the park, a bit away from where the attack took place, but the general area was busy with people and so I would ask anyone who saw the youths or the assault to contact police.
“If you have any information that may assist our investigation, please contact police via 101 quoting reference number 3125 of Saturday, June 24, 2023. Alternatively, details can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
