A teenager remains in hospital after suffering “lacerations” in a suspected slashing following an incident outside a nightclub in Glasgow.

The 18-year-old is thought to have been attacked by two men on Sauchiehall Street in the early hours of Sunday morning after leaving The Savoy.

Ambulance crews rushed to the scene shortly after 1.55am to provide emergency treatment before transferring him to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where his condition is described as stable.

Investigators believe the attack may be linked to an earlier “disturbance” at the late night venue.

An appeal has since been launched to trace the two men – both of whom had yellow bands around their wrist at the time of the incident – believed to be responsible.

The first is described as white with short, dark hair and was said to be wearing a black bubble jacket with the hood up and black jogging trousers.

The second is also thought to be white with short, dark hair, but was wearing a grey t-shirt, black jogging trousers and black trainers.

Detective constable John Fagan said: “Enquiries are ongoing to trace those involved in this disturbance and establish the circumstances surrounding this attack.

“We believe that this incident may be linked to an earlier disturbance in the Savoy nightclub and officers are carrying out enquiries to establish more information to confirm those involved had been in the nightclub earlier. 

“Officers are continuing to check CCTV footage in relation to this crime.

“This is a very busy area and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Sauchiehall Street in the city centre who witnessed anything suspicious, or who has any information that will assist our investigation to contact officers through 101 quoting reference 0493 of July 10.”

He added: “Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
