Officers were called to a report that a 27-year-old man had been found on Brookfield Road at around 9.05pm on Saturday April 27.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

An extensive investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

Detective Chief Inspector Ally Semple, Major Investigation Teams (West) said: “At this time, we believe that the attack on the man was targeted.

“Officers have been carrying out enquiries in the area, checking CCTV and speaking to local residents but we’d still like to hear from anyone with information who has not yet come forward.

“We’d be keen to view any doorbell/private CCTV or dashcam footage from the area and between 8.30pm and 9.15pm on Saturday, just in case footage has been caught that would identify any suspects.

“There will be an increased police presence in the area as our enquiries continue.”
