POLICE say two more people have been arrested for violent offences as part of the ongoing Operation Path.

On Saturday, local officers in Dunfermline attended at the Stagecoach bus depot on St Leonards Street following reports of a disturbance.

Two men both aged 29 were found to have been assaulted, threatened and subjected to xenophobic and homophobic remarks during this incident.

As a result of Operation Path inquiries, a 19-year-old man and 17-year-old man were detained and subsequently charged with a number of crimes including assault, breach of the peace, possession of an offensive weapon and resisting arrest.

The pair made a first appearance at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Monday.

Sergeant Colette Mather said: "Violence and associated disorder offences will not be tolerated and through Operation Path we have made several arrests for a range of crimes.

"This activity will continue, with violent offenders being targeted wherever they are identified and so our message is clear.

"If you carry out such an offence, you will be arrested and you will face prosecution.

"We are committing to keeping our communities safe and anyone wishing to report a crime of any sort can do so by contacting us on 101, or by making an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
