Appeal following serious assault in Drumchapel, Glasgow

Published 10 December 2019

Detectives in Glasgow are appealing for information following a serious assault in the Drumchapel area on Monday, 9 December, 2019.

Between 10pm and 10.30pm on Monday night, a 16-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man were walking along a lane near to Kinfauns Drive when they were attacked from behind by two men wearing dark clothing. The two male victims were taken by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital with serious injuries.

Detective Constable Greg Turnbull, of Glasgow CID, said: "The two men were attacked from behind so we do not have a description of the attackers. Officers working on the investigation are checking all available CCTV and carrying out door-to-door enquiries to identify the people responsible.

“I am appealing to anyone who was on Kinfauns Drive or the surrounding streets around this time who may have witnessed the attack, saw two men running away or saw any suspicious activity to contact the police as soon as possible. I would also ask anyone with dash-cam footage who was driving in the area at the time to check back.

"I would urge anyone who may have information in connection with the attack, no matter how small they think it is, to contact the police.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference number 4134 of Monday 9 December, or can talk to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
