Police investigate attempted murder after a car is driven at a man in Castlemilk Road
Detectives are continuing enquiries following an attempted murder in the King’s Park area.
Around 10.30pm on Wednesday, 2 June 2021, the occupants of a white Seat Toledo drove up Castlemilk Road and stopped in front of a parked car. The occupants of the Seat got out and vandalised the vehicle, a black Audi Q7. They got back into the Toledo and drove off.
A man then came out to see what damage had been done to the car when the person driving the Seat Toledo turned around and attempted to drive towards the man. The man jumped out the way of the vehicle and was uninjured.
Officers are treating the incident at attempted murder.
There is limited information on the occupants of the Seat, they are male and white. At this stage officers do not know how many people were in the Seat and they are reviewing CCTV images for any further details which could assist their enquiries.
Detective Constable Matt Potter said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident. In particular, I would ask motorists and taxi-drivers with dash cams to check their footage as they may have captured an image of the Seat Toledo and the image could assist us in identifying those involved. Any small piece of information could prove vital and I would ask people to pass on what they know.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 3981 of the 2 June, 2021. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
