Further appeal following attack on couple, Drumchapel area
We are continuing to appeal for the help of the public after a man and a woman were attacked in front of their children near a canal path in the Drumchapel area of Glasgow.
The family were sitting on a grassy bank in Blairdardie Road on Saturday, 17 April, around 5.10pm when they were seriously assaulted. The 26-year-old woman and 30-year-old man were treated in hospital for serious head and back injuries.
Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of what happened and officers are keen to speak to teenagers who were in the area at the time and who may have moved off towards the canal path and towards Garscadden Road.
In particular they believe that a teenage boy and two teenage girls may be able to help with enquiries. The boy is described as aged 13 to 17 with brown hair and was wearing a bright yellow T-shirt and dark jogging bottoms.
Both girls are described as aged 12 to 15. One had long, dark hair in a ponytail and was wearing a dark T-shirt and black Adidas joggers with three stripes down the outside leg. The other girl had long blonde hair in a ponytail and was wearing a dark top, denim shorts or a short skirt, and white trainers.
Detective Inspector Kenny McDonald said: “This family were enjoying an afternoon in the sunshine when the parents were brutally attacked and we are keen to speak to anyone with information that can help our investigation.
“We know there were groups of younger teenagers around at the time, as well as older youths, some of whom may have been drinking. It is important that we speak to those who were there as they may have information that can assist our enquiries.
“There is also continued anti-social behaviour in this area and officers are carrying out patrols. We will not tolerate this kind of behaviour and work towards bringing those responsible to justice and make our communities safer places.”
