A man has been left with slash wounds to the back after being attacked while walking with his girlfriend on a Glasgow street.

The 24-year-old was on the Fieldhead Drive area of Eastwood with his partner when he was seriously assaulted by another man just after midnight on Saturday into the early hours of Sunday.

Emergency services attended and he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where staff describe his condition as stable.

Police are now looking to trace the man responsible who is described as being white, aged around 25-years-old and around 6ft2 with a slim build and short dark hair.

He was wearing a black tracksuit.

Detective Constable Paul Hendry of Govan Police Station said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Fieldhead Road and Bonnyrigg Drive shortly after midnight on Sunday morning, who saw this incident take place, or who has any information that may assist our investigation to contact officers through 101.”
