Grampian Police said the incident was totally unacceptable

Police are hunting three teenagers who assaulted, robbed and racially abused two Asian men in Aberdeen.

Police said the "unprovoked" attack took place on George Street between 2300 GMT and midnight on Friday.

The victims, who were also threatened with a knife, were left with bruising and swelling.

Their attackers - two young men and a woman - took two bikes from the men and went towards the city centre. All three are thought to be in their mid-teens.

Trace culprits

One of the suspects was described as being about 16-20 years, 5ft 11in to 6ft tall, of medium build with short, wavy dark hair. He was wearing a long-sleeved white tracksuit top with red and blue bands on the cuffs, black tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.

The other teenager was described as being 5ft 7in, aged about 15-16, of medium build with short, cropped dark hair and was wearing a black dress jacket, dark jeans and boots.

The female was described as being about 16-years-old, 5ft 6in, of medium build, with black shoulder-length hair which was not tied up. She was wearing a black jacket, similar to a combat jacket, navy blue jeans and high-heeled boots.

A Grampian Police spokesperson said: "This type of behaviour is totally unacceptable. Every effort is being made to identify those responsible for this unprovoked attack."
