A man has been robbed by two men impersonating police officers at a leisure centre in Inverness.
The incident took place in the car park of Inverness Leisure Centre on Bught Lane at around 8.20pm on Sunday.
The 42-year-old was approached by two men who claimed that they worked for the police and they told him they were searching his car.
However, the pair then stole a number of personal items and money from the car before making off in a dark vehicle.
Police have now released a description of the suspects.
The first man is described as being around 5ft7 with a slim build and short dark hair.
At the time of the incident he was wearing a bright coloured t-shirt and jeans.
The second man is described as being around 5ft9 with a stocky build and scruffy dark hair.
He was wearing a blue jacket.
Both men spoke with Scottish accents.
Detective Sergeant Joanna Macleod, from Inverness CID, said: “It is particularly disturbing to see that the victim’s trust in the police was taken advantage of by these two fraudsters, only for them to ransack his car.
“We are carrying out extensive enquiries to identify the pair, so they can be brought to justice.
“We are appealing for anyone with information on this incident, or who was in the area and may have potential dashcam footage, to please come forward.
“At this time, I’d also ask the public to remain vigilant. If anyone approaches you, claiming to be a member of Police Scotland, please ensure that you ask to see some form of identification.”
