A man was hospitalised with serious injuries following a suspected “targeted attack” in Glasgow.

The 25-year-old was walking near to the Albert Railway Bridge on Clyde Street on November 26 when he was assaulted in what police believe to have been a deliberate incident.

He was subsequently taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment and has since been released.

An appeal has now been launched to trace the man responsible.

The suspect is described as being Asian, in his 20s, around 5ft 10in in height, of a slim build with a moustache.

He is described as wearing a black jacket with a blue hood worn up, black tracksuit bottoms and black trainers at the time and was last seen walking towards Saltmarket.

Police are now looking to speak to witnesses, in particular a bike courier who may have been in the area at the time.

Detective constable Richard Carson of Glasgow CID said: “Our enquiries are ongoing and we are now appealing for the assistance of the public.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident and hasn’t already spoken to police to contact us. In particular we believe there may have been a bike courier in the area at the time who we are keen to speak to.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident 3933 of November 26. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
