A FRAIL pensioner has been left hurt after evil thugs pushed him to the ground. 

Police are hunting the suspects who assaulted a 69-year-old blind man who was out walking his dog in Ayr.

Around 6.50pm on Thursday May 12 2016, the man, was out walking his dog with two friends in a field near Heathfield Road when he was struck by a man riding a trailbike.

Before the assault took place, the motorcyclist circled round the group a few times as they were walking their dogs. The biker then drove past the 69 year-old man and assaulted him, causing him to fall to the ground. The suspect then shouted at the group before driving off towards a footbridge leading to Lochside Road.

The elderly man was badly shaken and received cuts and bruises but did not require hospital treatment.

The suspect is described as wearing dark-coloured leather clothing and a dark-coloured helmet with the visor down.

Constable Callaghan of Ayr Police Office is continuing his enquiries and appealing for information.

Constable Callaghan said: “Enquiries are continuing to trace the man responsible for this attack and I would urge anyone with information that may assist our investigation to contact Ayr Police Office through the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained."
