Police are investigating after a car was deliberately driven at a man in an attempted murder.

The incident took place in the Kings Park area of Glasgow last Wednesday night when a white Seat Toledo drove up Castlemilk Road and stopped at a parked Audi Q7 at around 10.30pm.

The occupants of the Seat Toledo then got out and vandalised the black Audi before getting back in their vehicle and driving off.

Another man then came out onto the street to check what damage had been done to the car when the Seat Toledo was turned around and driven towards him.

The man managed to jump out of the way of the oncoming car and was uninjured, however police are now treating the attack as an attempted murder.

Officers investigating the incident say it is not clear how many people were in the car and they are reviewing CCTV images for more information.

Detective constable Matt Potter said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident.  

“In particular, I would ask motorists and taxi-drivers with dash cams to check their footage as they may have captured an image of the Seat Toledo and the image could assist us in identifying those involved.  

“Any small piece of information could prove vital and I would ask people to pass on what they know.”
