DISTURBANCE – MOSSBANK AVENUE, GLASGOW

Detectives are appealing for information following a large scale disturbance which occurred in the Stepps area of Glasgow on Monday 24 September 2018.

Around 5.25pm local residents in Mossbank Avenue called police to report an incident where two men, one in a silver Audi Q7 and the other in a blue Volkswagen Golf, were being targeted by a group of 7 or 8 men.

The suspects were ramming the victims’ cars with other vehicles, which included a dark coloured Range Rover Evoke and a silver coloured Volkswagen Toureg.

A witnessed has described one of the suspects in the Volkswagen Toureg as being a young man wearing a dark hooded jacket with the hood pulled tight around his face.

When officers arrived at the scene all individuals involved in the disturbance had left.

The silver Audi Q7 was found abandoned in Mossbank Avenue and was badly damaged.

The suspect cars are believed to have left Mossbank Avenue onto Royston Road and either turned east towards Cumbernauld Road in Stepps or west towards Provanmill or Robroyston.

Detective Inspector Jim Bradley from Greater Glasgow CID said: “This was a reckless incident in a residential street and would have been extremely frightening for members of the public who witnessed it.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Mossbank Avenue around 5.25pm yesterday and may have seen what happened, or noticed the cars described prior to or following the incident, to please get in touch.

“I would also ask any motorists with dashcams to check their footage in case they have captured anything which may be of significance to the investigation.
