Detectives are appealing for information after a man was seriously assaulted in Govan on Thursday 22 March 2012.
Between 1545 and 1600 hours on Thursday afternoon, a 32 year old man was attacked by two men as he left a house in Crossloan Terrace, Govan. He was taken by ambulance to the Southern General Hospital where he was detained. At the time of writing (Saturday 21 March ) hospital staff described his condition as stable.
Detective Constable Chris Smith, Govan CID, is appealing for witnesses. He said: “The man was in his friend’s house when two men came to the door and entered the flat. Once inside, an argument took place between them and the friend, so he left the flat. However, as he went into the street, he was attacked from behind and badly beaten.
“We are keen to speak to three men who were in the area at the time and who might be able to help us with our enquiries. They are described as possibly being in their 30’s, white and Scottish. One was wearing a red tracksuit, another a brown jacket and the third a green top. Their information could prove significant in the enquiry.
“Crossloan Terrace is residential and overlooked by many flats. It is possible that people nearby will have seen or heard a disturbance outside. If they did, I would ask them to phone Helen Street CID on 0141 532 5400 or CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
