Police officers in Maryhill are keen to speak to a man they believe may have information after a 55 year-old man was found with serious injuries in the Wyndford area of Glasgow.


Around 7.50 pm on Tuesday, 18 December 2018 a 55-year-old man was found with head injuries in Ardessie Place.


He was taken by ambulance to Glasgow Royal Infirmary in a critical condition, and later transferred to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. Medical staff now described his condition as stable.


Following enquiries officers now believe there was a man who may have tried to speak to him or help him before emergency services attended.


He is described as white, in his early 50s, around 5ft 9- 6ft tall of heavy build with short black and greying hair. He had a Glasgow accent and was clean shaven, with a scar on his right cheek. He was wearing a dark green khaki waterproof bomber style jacket and dark blue jeans.


Detective Inspector Craig McPhail, Maryhill Police Office, said:


“We are keen to speak to the man described as he could have vital information that could help us with our enquiries into how this man came to be so seriously injured.


“We ask you to think back, were you in this area that night or do you know anyone matching this description who could have been?


“The person described may not have realised how seriously injured this man was at the time.”
