Police are investigating after a woman was attacked from behind in Selkirk.

It happened on a footpath between Dunsdale Road and Old Bridge Road, at around 10pm on Thursday 30 March.

The 44-year-old woman was walking alone when she was approached from behind and knocked to the ground, sustaining cuts and bruises to her legs.

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101.

At this time we are still trying to establish the full circumstances surrounding this assault and would urge anyone else who was on the footpath on Thursday evening, and who remembers seeing any suspicious activity, to contact police immediately.

Similarly, anyone with any further information relating to this inquiry should also get in touch.
