A teenager suffered a broken jaw in Stonehaven in what police have described as an unprovoked attack.

The 18-year-old man was assaulted at the town's railway station on Arduthie Road just before midnight on Saturday.

Officers want to trace a man and woman in connection with the incident.

PC Graham Crawford said: "This appears to have been a completely unprovoked attack which has resulted in a young man being seriously injured. Violent behaviour will not be tolerated."

The woman was described as being in her late teens to early 20s, tall, of a slim build, with long brown hair.

She was wearing a beige coloured jacket and beige knee high boots.

The man was described as being in his early 20s, of a medium build, with short dark hair.

He was wearing a dark blue puffy jacket, blue jeans and grey and black trainers.
