Appeal following 'brutal' assault in Aberdeen

Police have appealed for witnesses after a man was the victim of a "brutal" unprovoked assault in Aberdeen.

The 21-year-old man suffered facial injuries after the incident outside a bar on Clifton Road at about 23:15 on Boxing Day.

Police Scotland said it was "utterly unprovoked, random and brutal".

Officers want to speak to a man described as stocky, bald, with a light beard and possibly a facial piercing.

He was wearing dark blue jeans with a yellow/green top, and was with three other men.
