Investigations into two unrelated assaults on Saracen Street in Glasgow
Officers in Glasgow are appealing for information following two separate and unrelated serious assaults that both occurred on Saracen Street in Glasgow on Saturday, 30 October, 2021.
One of the incidents happened on Saracen Street at its junction with Bardowie Street on Saturday afternoon at 2.45pm where a 39-year-old man was seriously assaulted by three men.
Investigating Officer Detective Constable Kevin Ford said: “This incident happened in the middle of Saturday afternoon when the area was relatively busy.
“I’m very keen to appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have information that could assist us with our enquiries.
“The three men suspected of committing this assault have been described as wearing black clothing, two were of slim to medium build and one was an older, heavier built man. They were seen to get out of a Black Range Rover Evoque just prior to the incident. The victim sustained an injury to his head and was treated at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Saracen Street and Bardowie Street on Saturday afternoon to think back and remember if they saw this vehicle and if they can recall its registration number or any of its occupants.
“Also, if anyone has any dash cam or CCTV footage of the area at around 2.45pm on Saturday afternoon, I would also ask them to get in touch.”
A further, unrelated serious assault occurred earlier in the day on the same street.
Between approximately 4am and 5am three people were assaulted by three men who arrived in a taxi just prior to the incident. The victims, a 39-year-old man who was assaulted plus a 30-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man who were seriously assaulted were all treated at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for their injuries.
Detective Constable Ford added: “Although this incident took place in the early hours, if anyone in local area witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage, I would ask them to contact police.
“I would like to stress that we believe these two incidents to be unrelated, isolated and with no wider threat to the public or local community. “
Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 1722 of 30 October (4am incident) or 2416 of 30 October (2.45pm incident).
