A man has been charged over a stabbing near to a polling station in Renfrewshire.
A 50-year-old man was left with life threatening injuries after officers responded to reports of a knife attack on Broomlands Street in Paisley at around 9.15am on Thursday.
A 25-year-old has since been arrested and charged in connection with the incident and will appear at court on Monday.
The injured man was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he has been treated for serious injuries.
Police said the incident is not related to the nearby polling station or to the election.
A spokesman for the force said: “Following yesterday’s appeal, Police Scotland can confirm that a 25-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with a serious assault in the Paisley area.”
