A 25-year-old man has suffered serious injuries after being attacked twice within a short space of time.

Police Scotland is appealing for information after the 25-year-old man was seriously assaulted in Glasgow in the early hours of this morning, Saturday, June 8.

Just after half past midnight, the man was punched in the face by two men on Union Street, near to Gordon Street.

He was then assaulted by one of the same men shortly afterwards on Pollokshaws Road.

The 25 year-old man was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital to be treated for serious facial and ear injuries. He was released after treatment.

The two men were accompanied by two women on both occasions and officers are trying trace all four of those involved in this incident.

• Suspect 1: Man of Romanian appearance, grey style tammy hat, dark jacket (possibly brown), black bottoms, black trainers with white patch, carrying a back pack.

• Suspect 2: Man of Romanian appearance, light coloured hooded top (possibly cream), dark trousers, grey trainers with white soles, grey and cream coloured back pack.

• Suspect 3: Woman of Romanian appearance, grey hooded top, long patterned skirt, black backpack, carrying a blanket or something similar.

• Suspect 4: Woman of Romanian appearance, long green/brown coat with blue fur lining at the neck, long patterned skirt, grey backpack.

Detective Constable Stephen Palmer, of Stewart Street Police Office, said: “We believe that prior to the assault there had been a disagreement between the 25-year-old man and the group. However no matter the circumstances, violence will never be tolerated.

“Officers are currently carrying out CCTV checks within and between the two streets these incidents took place, however we would appeal to anyone who may have seen this group to get in touch with us.

“The city centre would have been busy last night with people out enjoying a Friday night out and therefore somebody must have seen something.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 0144 of Saturday 8 June 2019. Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given in confidence.
