The incident is said to have occurred in Zetland Park – near the Pavilion – when the girls were walking home.

One of the girl’s mothers put an angry post on Facebook last night giving details of the alleged assault, stating the three young females were “jumped” by a “bunch of men/older boys” and that one girl “got her teeth knocked out” and required hospital treatment.

Police Scotland confirmed they are now investigating the matter, but would not go into details about the people involved or the nature of the attack.
