Appeal after bag snatched in Portree

Police on Skye are appealing for information after a bag was snatched in Portee last Friday by two people on a motorbike.

The incident happened at around 2pm last Friday (23rd October) at the parent and child parking spaces outside the Co-operative store on Dunvegan Road and saw two people on a dirty looking, white off-road motocross-type bike snatch a small cream coloured rucksack containing personal items from a 58-year-old man. Both riders wore black-and-white motorcycle helmets with clear visors and were wearing brown leather jackets, dark trousers and trainers.

Extra police patrols were carried out in Portree over the weekend as a result of the incident.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is asked to contact Portree Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
