CCTV footage shows a man running away from the scene and getting into the passenger side of a grey Mini, which then drove away along Elm Street and Brechin Road.

Police Scotland is now asking for anyone who lives in the Brechin Road area who may have private CCTV footage to come forward to assist with their enquiries.

They have also highlighted that there is a potential witness they are trying to find, a man who was seen walking a “yellow-labrador type dog” on the south side pavement on Brechin Road at its junction with Elm Street.
