APPEAL AFTER INDECENT ASSAULT IN PENICUIK

We're investigating a report of an indecent assault in the Deanburn area of Penicuik.

The incident happened around 3.15pm yesterday (Thursday) in a wooded area near to Rullion Road and Deanburn.

Two girls, both aged 14, were walking when a man walked past them and touched one of the girls inappropriately.

The man is described as having a tanned complexion, in his late thirties or early fourties, with a heavy build, dark messy hair and a beard.

He was wearing a green and brown striped jumper, bootcut jeans and dark footwear. His hair and clothing were covered in dust and dried mud.

Sergeant Michele Lindsay of Penicuik said:

"As part of our ongoing inquiries we're asking anyone who may have seen the man in the area, or who recognises his description, to come forward.

"Likewise, I would urge anyone who may have information about this incident to contact us."

Those with any information can call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2434 of 20 July, or report this anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

BOGUS WORKMEN INCIDENT, PARKWOOD GARDENS, BROXBURN

We are investigating following a bogus workman incident at an address in Parkwood Gardens, Broxburn.

The incident happened around 11am on Thursday, July 20, when an elderly man was approached at his doorstep by two men offering to undertake roof repairs.

The call was believed to be suspicious and we were contacted. We are now appealing for witnesses, however we are following a positive line of inquiry.

Detective Constable Greig Muir of Livingston CID said: "We are eager to trace these men as soon as possible and I would ask anyone who was in Parkwood Gardens area of Broxburn on the morning of Thursday, July 20, and saw any suspicious, to get in touch with us at their earliest convenience.

"Bogus callers work by trying to pressurise householders into buying a product or service that they don't actually need. They often look to target the most vulnerable in our society, particularly the elderly.

"Be suspicious of anyone cold calling at your door offering to do work, or to fix a problem you have no prior knowledge of and never pay for goods or services to strangers arriving at your door.

"If you wish to find out more information about preventing bogus callers, please visit the Police Scotland website."

Those with information can contact officers at Livingston CID on 101, quoting incident number 1182 of July 20, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
