A baby girl was hit on the head by a brick after it was thrown through the window of a bus in Glasgow.

At around 6.45pm on Tuesday, a 15-month-old baby was on a bus on Battlefield Road in the city’s southside in a pram with her mother when a brick came through the window.

It landed in the pram and hit the little girl on the head, with glass from the broken window also landing on the pram.

The baby was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital to be checked over and later released.

Detective inspector Darren Munogee said: “Fortunately the baby was not seriously injured but this has left her mother extremely upset and distressed.

“Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and we are appealing to anyone who saw or knows the person who threw the brick to get in touch.

“In addition, anyone on the bus who has not already spoken to officers is asked to get in touch.”

Anyone who can assist officers are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2784 of Tuesday, January 10, 2023, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
