A man has been taken to hospital after being stabbed in a Glasgow street.

The serious assault in Brunton Street, Cathcart, happened in the early hours of Tuesday.

Police were called around 12.20am and a 30-year-old man was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital by ambulance.

He is being treated for stab wounds and medical staff describe his condition as stable.

Police believe the victim was involved in an altercation with two Asian men, who left the scene in a black Audi A5.

The first man was described as in his late 20s, short and wearing dark clothing. The second man was said to be taller and older.

Detective inspector Lynsey Watters said: “This type of violence will not be tolerated and extensive enquiries are underway to get to the bottom of what happened and trace the men responsible.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area in the early hours of this morning and may have noticed a disturbance, or a black Audi A5 driving at speed, to please come forward.

“I would also urge motorists with dashcams who were in the Cathcart area at the time to check their footage in case they may have captured something which could be of significance to our investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
