POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man in his sixties was spat at by two men as he left a Stonehouse fish and chip shop.
The man, dressed in a beige jacket and sporting greying hair and a full grey beard, left the King Fry fish and chip shop on Cecil Street at just after 6pm on March 2, but as he put his chips in his car, a black Chrysler 300, he was approached by two men.
One of them accused the victim of poking his tongue at his mother. The man then spat in the victim’s face and pushed him to the floor.
The pair, described as being of Moroccan/Middle Eastern appearance, then ran off.
Both suspects were described as being in their mid-twenties.
One had short, straight black hair with a thin ‘line’ beard which went under the chin with no moustache.
He was 5ft 8ins tall, of proportionate build and spoke with a foreign accent. There is no description of the second suspect other than his age.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area and witnessed the incident.
