A man was taken to hospital with stabs wounds after an altercation broke out during a game of rugby in a park in Glasgow.

The 39-year-old was seriously assaulted near to the entrance of Dawsholm Park, Ilay Road, around 5.30pm on Saturday.

Emergency services attended and he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University, where he was treated for stab wounds.

A police investigation has so far revealed a group of young men were playing an “informal game of rugby” before the attack.

Detectives have appealed for members of the public, who were in the park at the time, to come forward.

Detective sergeant Murray Rolley said: “We know there were various members of the public in the park around the time of the incident and I am appealing for anyone with information to contact us.

“Maybe you saw the game of rugby or the group of males, playing or running off.

“Any small piece of information could be vital to us as we piece together the circumstances.”

If you have any information contact police on 101.
