A man has been left seriously injured after he was struck with a glass bottle during a fight in Glasgow City Centre.

The 36-year-old was on Argyle Street, near to James Watt Street, when he was assaulted by another man during the brawl that spilled out on to a busy road at around 5pm on Monday.

Cars were forced to swerve to avoid the pair before one of them struck the other with the bottle and made off from the scene.

Emergency services attended the scene and the victim was taken to hospital where medical staff say he is being treated for a serious facial injury.

Police are now appealing for information in a bid to trace the person responsible who is described as being a white male wearing dark clothing and a beanie hat.

Officers are appealing for witnesses as well as checking local CCTV and making enquiries into the attack.

Detective constable David Crawford, Police Scotland, said: “The disturbance, involving two men, spilled onto the street and in front of cars that would have had to swerve to avoid them.

“Argyle Street would have been busy around this time and I would ask anyone who was in the area, or who may have been driving by and captured images on dash-cam, to contact police.”
