A teenage boy has been charged after an alleged assault on an elderly man was posted on a social networking channel.

The incident, involving a 14-year-old, is said to have happened outside Asda in Riverview Drive, Dyce, Aberdeen, on April 26.

Officers made inquiries about a video of the alleged assault, which was posted to YouTube and then later removed.

Police officers are keen to speak to the elderly man - who has yet to be traced - to ensure he is safe and well.

Sergeant Neil McHattie, from the local community policing team, said: ''Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in our communities and police will continue to work closely with our partner agencies to take robust action against anybody who takes part in it.''

Police Scotland said the boy will be reported to the Youth Justice Management Unit.

Inquiries into the incident are ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101.
