Police Scotland is releasing images of a man that officers believe may be able to assist them with their enquiries following a serious assault within MacConnell’s bar, Hope Street, Glasgow.


About 9pm on Sunday 25 February 2018, a 22-year-old man was socializing with friends at the bar when he was assaulted by another man. The victim was left requiring hospital treatment for his injuries.


Detectives are keen to speak to the man in the images as they believe that he may have information that will assist them with their ongoing investigation.


The man is described as white, 20-30 years of age, medium to heavy build, short brown hair and a brown beard. He is shown in the image wearing a light grey coloured top with small reflective markings on the left chest area and on the lower back of the back.  He was also wearing light or grey colored trousers and light-colored trainers.


Detective Constable Paul Houston from Stewart Street Police Office said:


“A young man has been left in a state of shock having been assaulted whilst on a night out with friends. This was a vicious assault that took place in Glasgow City Centre.  MacConnell’s bar was busy at the time and I am appealing for the identification of this man to assist with the ongoing investigation”.


I would urge anyone who recognises him, or who has information that may assist the investigation to contact Stewart Street Police Office through 101.  Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained
