At around 6.50pm on Tuesday, September 21 police received a report of an altercation between a group of youths outside McDonalds on Church Street.

It was reported that, following a verbal altercation, three male youths kicked and punched a male victim, causing him minor injuries.

Police have issued CCTV images of a male we would like to speak to as we believe he has information which could assist our investigation.

"I would ask anyone who has information which could assist our investigation, or recognises the man pictured, to come forward and we will take action."
