A 77-year-old man has been taken to hospital following an attack by three men in Falkirk.

The assault happened on Callander Road near the junction with Redding Road at around 1.20am on Saturday.

Police Scotland said the pensioner managed to make his way through to the town centre where he was found by a member of the public and taken to hospital.

He has since been discharged.

Officers said they have carried out extensive CCTV and local enquiries since the assault and are now asking people to come forward if they have any details that may assist their investigation.

DC Greg Cruickshanks, Falkirk CID, said: “The man had been walking home when he was attacked by three men. We have yet to establish why he was assaulted and so would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward.

“From CCTV we see that there were a few taxis and other cars on the road and also two people walking their dog along the street.

“We’d be keen to hear from them, the motorists, especially if they have dash-cam footage of the street between 1am and 1.30am, or indeed anyone who saw the man, who has grey hair and was wearing a blue jacket and navy blue trousers in the area.”

Information can be passed to officers via 101, quoting incident number 0543 of Saturday, March 9.

Alternatively, details can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
