A man was found unconscious on a street following what police believe was “a disturbance on a train” in Renfrewshire on Saturday night.
At around 9pm on Saturday, December 10, a 48-year-old man who had not long gotten off a train from Glasgow Central Station, was found by members of the public unconscious on Shore Street, Gourock.
He had sustained facial injuries for which he was later treated at Inverclyde Royal Hospital.
Following enquiries, the police believe that there was a “disturbance” on the train which involved a man who is described as white, in his 20s, of a slim build with dark hair and was wearing a dark coat.
Police said that he appeared alone but when he alighted from the train he was joined by another group of men in their 20s.
The force are now appealing to anyone who may have seen an incident take place outside the train station to come forward.
Detective constable Ruth Elder, of Greenock CID, said: “We are keen to speak to a group of young men, one of whom had been on the train from Glasgow which arrived in Gourock just before 9pm.
“From our enquiries so far, we believe there was a disturbance on the train involving a man who is described as white, in his 20s, of a slim build, with dark hair and wearing a dark coat.
“He appeared to be alone, however, when he alighted from the train he joined the company of other men outside Gourock Train Station, all casually dressed and in their 20s.
“A number of people came to the injured man’s aid and we have managed to speak to them but we would like to talk to anyone who was on the train or who may have seen an incident take place outside the train station on Shore Street.
“Officers are checking local CCTV from and would ask that anyone with information that may assist their investigation to contact police via 101 quoting incident number 1141 of Sunday December 11 2022. Alternatively, details can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
