Detectives are appealing for information after a man was seriously assaulted in the Springburn area of Glasgow in the early hours of Sunday 30 September 2018.

Around 1.10am a 27 year old man was walking in a lane behind Fernbank Street when he was approached by a man wearing a dark hooded top, who was not known to him.

The suspect appeared to punch the victim, knocking him to the ground, before running off in the direction of Springburn Road.

The victim then realised that he had been stabbed in the side and contacted police.

Emergency services attended and the victim was taken by ambulance to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Medical staff describe his condition as stable.

Detective Constable Greg Turnbull from Maryhill CID said: “This appears to have been a completely random and unprovoked attack and it is vital that we trace the despicable individual responsible.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Fernbank Street and Springburn Road in the early hours of Sunday Morning and may have noticed a man wearing a dark hooded top, or anything at all suspicious, to please get in touch.
