Officers in West Lothian are appealing for information after a man was assaulted in Bathgate.

Both suspects are described as white and aged between 35 and 40.

Detective Constable Samantha Plastow, of Livingston CID, said: “This is a serious incident which resulted in significant injury to the victim, who has thankfully come forward to report this matter.

“The town centre was busy with pedestrians at the time of the assault. We are asking members of the public who witnessed this incident, or who came to the aid of the victim, to get in contact with officers. Additionally, I would ask for anyone driving in the area at the time with a dashcam to check to see if they have captured the incident.

“Anyone with information that may assist with this investigation should contact police via 101, quoting incident 2327 of 4 May.”
