Appeal to trace man who attended home of elderly woman in Luncarty
Detectives are keen to trace a man who is believed to have attended the home of a woman in Luncarty who was later found injured within last month.
At around 9.30pm on Friday, 28 May, 2021, an 86-year-old woman was taken to hospital after being found by family members injured within her Kirkhill Drive address.
She remains in hospital receiving treatment.
Over the past three weeks officers have been conducting enquiries to establish how she came to sustain her injuries and are seeking to trace anyone who may have attended her address in the days leading up to when she was found.
As part of this officers are especially keen to trace a man who is believed to have attended her address in the working days prior to Friday, 28 May. He is described as a white man, aged in his fifties, with short spiky grey hair and grey stubble. He was wearing glasses, a black fleece and dark trousers and was carrying a black folder.
Detective Inspector Marc Lorente from the Specialist Crime Division said: “A significant amount of enquiry has been carried out since this incident was reported and how the woman came to be injured is still unclear.
“Our enquiries are focusing on people who may have been in the Kirkhill Drive area of Luncarty during the week commencing Monday, 24 May, including the described man. The address is at the junction with the main road through Luncarty and we’d ask anyone who noticed any unknown vehicles in the area, at the address or in the vicinity, to get in touch.”
Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote Operation Jackdrop, or incident 2847 of 29 May 2021. Information can be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
