Man seriously assaulted in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow

Published 11 September 2018

Detectives are appealing for information following a disturbance in the city centre of Glasgow on Sunday 9th September 2018.

Around 01.15am, a group of four men and two women were outside a takeaway shop in Sauchiehall Street at Pitt Street when they were approached by a group of seven men. An altercation broke out between the two groups which led to a large-scale disturbance. Several individuals were assaulted, however the incident was not reported to police and both groups made off.

A short time later, a 39-year-old man who had been standing outside the takeaway when the disturbance broke out discovered he had sustained an injury to his leg. He has no connection to either group but was injured nonetheless.

Officers are checking CCTV footage but are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.

The information on both groups is limited but one female had blonde hair, was wearing a black crop top, white skirt and knee-length socks.

Detective Constable Mark Paterson said,  “A man who had nothing to do with this incident has ended up being stabbed in the leg. Sauchiehall Street is a busy street with many revellers on nights out. I am asking anyone who was in the area around the time of this incident to contact us. They could have information which could prove vital in helping us trace the members of both groups.

“It’s possible people thought the incident wasn’t so serious, but an innocent bystander has been attacked by someone intent on causing harm, even though he had nothing to do with either group or the trouble that flared up between them.”

Anyone with information is asked to call CID officers at City Centre Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 0458 of 9 September 2018.  Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
