Detectives are continuing enquiries following a serious assault in Glasgow on Thursday 10 October 2019.

Around 3pm, a 26- year-old man was walking along Househillmuir Road, when he was approached by a man, who threatened him and chased him down the street before assaulting him.

The victim suffered serious lacerations to his head and body. He was treated for his injuries at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

The suspect is white, aged in his mid-twenties, with short brown hair and wearing a light coloured, hooded top and sports clothing.

Enquiries carried out so far have revealed that shortly after the incident, a grey Ford car was seen speeding away from the area.

Officers also believe that the attack was a targeted attack and the victim was the intended target.

Officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries and are checking CCTV footage from in and around the area for any additional information it could provide.

Detective Sergeant Raymond Hunter said: “This attack occurred near to a local primary school and there will have been parents making their way towards the school to collect their children. I would ask them to think back and consider if they saw something which seemed a little odd but they dismissed it at the time. If anyone has any information regarding this crime, the suspect or the grey Ford car, then please do get in touch with us. Your information could prove vital as we piece together what has happened here and who is responsible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call officers at Helen Street Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 2216 of Thursday 10 October 2019. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
