Robbers attempt to steal postman's mailbag in Aberdeen

Police have appealed for witnesses after the attempted robbery of a postman for his mailbag in Aberdeen.

The 29-year-old postman was assaulted on Bradley Terrace on Tuesday morning.

Grampian Police want to trace a group of men seen in a small silver hatchback car with distinctive alloy wheels who may have been involved.

One was described as being white, tall and stocky, in his late 20s to early 30s, with a dirty tanned complexion, unshaven, with an Aberdeen accent.
