SERIOUS ASSAULT – GLASSFORD STREET, GLASGOW
Detectives are appealing for information following a serious assault which occurred within Glasgow City Centre in the early hours of Saturday 9 February 2019.
Around 5.45am a 37 year old man was attacked by two men outside the Grosvenor Casino in Glassford Street.
He appears to have been in the company of the men within the casino prior to the incident taking place.
The two suspects made off from the scene, heading south towards the Trongate area and turning left.
The victim made his way home and called an ambulance. He was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment to several stab wounds to his torso and back. Medical staff describe his condition as stable.
The first man involved in the incident is described as white, mid 30s, with short dark hair which is balding on the top and of stocky build. He was wearing a distinctive short bright blue puffer jacket, light coloured jeans and black trainers with a white sole.
The second man is described as white, late 20s, with short dark hair which is thinning at the top, and of slim build. He was wearing a grey Stone Island top with the logo on the left arm, a dark coloured body warmer, dark trousers and black Nike Airmax trainers.
Detective Constable Paul Houston from Stewart Street CID said: “This was a violent attack and extensive enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and trace the individuals involved.
“I would appeal to anyone who was in the casino in the early hours of Saturday morning and may have noticed the two suspects with the victim, or indeed witnessed the assault outside, to please get in touch.
“Any motorists with dashcams who were in the vicinity between 5.40 and 6am are asked to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance.
“I would also appeal to any taxi drivers who think they may have picked up two men matching the above descriptions in the area to come forward.
