Detective Constable Andrew Barbour from Maryhill CID:
“This appears to have been a targeted attack on the victim and extensive enquiries are ongoing to establish a motive and trace the man responsible.
“We understand that the suspect was loitering around the Gairbraid Avenue area for around half an hour prior to the incident and there were also a number of members of the public in the reception of the leisure centre when the attack took place.
“I am appealing to anyone with information that could assist the investigation to please come forward. In particular I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the assault within the leisure centre or who may have noticed the suspect hanging around beforehand. I would also ask any drivers who were in the area to review their dash cams to see if they have captured the suspect or anything which could be of significance.
