Police are investigating after a man was attacked in Glasgow city centre.

A 20-year-old man suffered a serious head injury and was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary following an attack on Gordon Street at 9.45pm on Saturday.

Officers are now working to trace the man responsible. 

The suspect is described as white, aged in his 20’s, with a medium build and short black hair, shaved in at the sides.

He was wearing a white t-shirt with a black motif on the chest, black tapered tracksuit trousers and black trainers with white soles.

Detective constable Matthew McCann said: “We believe that five minutes prior to the assault taking place, there was an altercation between the two men. This area is always busy with people out and about and revellers socialising.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident to contact us.

“Even if you think your information is not important, let us be the judge of that and please do pass it on.

“A young man has sustained a serious head injury and it’s vital we find the person responsible.

“Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting incident number 4032 of March 26, 2022. 

“Alternatively Crimestoppers can be called on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
