Serious assault, Broomielaw, Glasgow City Centre
Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a woman was seriously assaulted in Glasgow City Centre in the early hours of Sunday, 10 October, 2021.
Around 4.30am a 21-year-old woman was within the upstairs area of a casino on the Broomielaw celebrating her birthday.
She was walking past a table of men, who were not known to her, when one of them kicked her ankle, causing her to fall.
The victim was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow where she was treated for a double fracture to her ankle and later released.
The suspect is described as white Scottish, between 25 and 30 years old, around 6ft tall, and short dark brown hair. He was wearing light blue jeans, a black t-shirt, a red jacket and dark coloured shoes.
Detective Constable Graham Nicolson from Glasgow City Centre CID said:
“This was a completely unprovoked assault on the victim, who had been out celebrating her 21st birthday. As a result of this horrible act, she has been left with a serious broken ankle which will require significant physio and outpatient appointments.
“The casino was busy at the time of the incident due to the Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder boxing match and it is vital we speak to any witnesses in order to trace the man responsible and hold him accountable.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland through 101, quoting incident number 1393 of Sunday, 10 October, 2021. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
