SERIOUS ASSAULT – GLASGOW
Detectives are appealing for information following a serious assault on Sunday 31 March 2019.
Between 11pm and 11:30pm, a 33 year old man was attacked in Dalmarnock Road at its junction with Queen Mary Street.
The man was walking along Dalmarnock Road with a friend when he was approached by six men who assaulted him, causing him to fall to the ground. The injured man managed to get away and got into a taxi with his friend and made his way to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he was treated for facial injuries. He then contacted police to report the incident.
Enquiries carried out so far have revealed there was a disturbance involving several people just prior to the assault at the junction of Queen Mary Street and Baltic Place. It’s possible the 33 year old man may have got caught up in this disturbance.
One of the male suspects is described as white, around 5ft. 4 inches in height, with a slim build, between 18-20 years old and wearing a dark hooded top. A second suspect is white, between 18 and 20 years old with dark hair and wearing a white t-shirt.
Officers have been reviewing CCTV images for any information it could provide and have been carrying out door to door enquiries
Detective Constable John Boyd said:
“A young man has been left with serious facial injuries and it’s imperative we trace whoever is responsible. There does not appear to be a motive for the attack and I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time or anyone who may have seen or heard the disturbance to contact us. Any small piece of information could prove vital in helping us identify those responsible. If you have any information, please do pass it on.”
