A man has been assaulted by a gang of men in the back garden of a house in Glasgow. 

The 34-year-old was targeted by four men at around 3.50pm in Springburn Way on Thursday.

The suspects pulled up in a dark-coloured car, parking it in the residents’ car park, ahead of the attack.

Following the assault three men got back into the car and fled at speed, in the direction of Atlas Road. The final suspect ran away in the same direction.


Emergency services attended and the victim was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.

Detective constable Andrew Barbour said: “This type of violent behaviour is completely unacceptable and officers are carrying out extensive door-to-door and CCTV enquiries to trace those responsible.

“We know that there were members of the public around the area at the time and are appealing for people to please come forward, whether you have seen the assault take place or the vehicle used by the suspects. 

“Our enquiries have so far shown a large volume of private and commercial vehicles traveling along the street at the time, so please review any dashcam footage and contact Police Scotland.”


Anyone with information is urged to call Police on 101, quoting incident 2425 of 28 May. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.”
