WITNESSES are being sought after a 20 year old man claimed he had been assaulted in Lerwick town centre in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The man approached police officers patrolling Commercial Street at 2.30am to claim that he had been attacked.
The force said they would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed such an incident.
Police also reported that a vehicle went off the road at 6.50am on Saturday morning on the main A970 close to the Vidlin junction.
The two people in the car received minor injuries but did not need medical treatment, a spokesman said.
