Posted 24 Feb 2011 in Guitar Crime

Detectives in Kilmarnock, Scotland, are appealing for information and witnesses following an assault and robbery in Kilmarnock on Monday, February 21

Around 7.30pm the 20 year old student was walking through town when he became aware of someone shouting behind him and two men following him. The two suspects then approached him from behind, threatened him before assaulting him and robbing him of his guitar.

Speaking today from Kilmarnock CID Detective Constable Omar Sheikh said: “Thankfully the victim was not injured in this attack and I would like to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the assault and robbery to contact me. I am particularly keen to speak to a young man who came to the assistance of the victim shortly after the robbery. He is an Asian male in his mid 20’s. He was wearing a black tracksuit with gold trim and was carrying shopping bags. We haven’t had an opportunity to speak to this man and I am sure he has information which can help our enquiry.

“I would also ask that any pawn brokers or similar type of shop or any individual who has been offered a Black Epiphone, Les Paul guitar to get in touch. When the guitar was stolen it was in a black plastic case which had a pink sticker on the top of it.
