Police urge 'injured' man to come forward

A man who may have been hurt in a fight in Dunfermline, Fife, in which another man suffered a head injury is being urged to come forward to the police.

The incident happened at a taxi rank on St Margaret Street, near the town's library, at about 03:30 on Sunday.

A 33-year-old man was taken Victoria Hospital with a head injury but has since been discharged.

Police are appealing for witnesses and for the second man to come forward as he may be able to help the inquiry.

He was described as being in his 20s to early 30s, about 5ft 11in tall, with blond/fair hair. He was wearing a blue and white vertical striped shirt.

Police believe he had been in Lorenzo's nightclub earlier.

Det Sgt Kieran Marsh, of Police Scotland, said: "We're investigating an incident where two men were involved in an altercation with each other at the taxi rank on St Margaret Street during the early hours of Sunday.

"At least one of the men has suffered injuries and we are reviewing CCTV from the area to identify the other man involved.

"I would appeal for that man to contact us as a matter of urgency if he recognises himself from the description."
