Police are appealing for information after a teenager was slashed by a bladed weapon and robbed during an unprovoked attack in Glasgow.
The incident took place at around 11.55am on Sunday in the Townhead area of the city.
The 17-year-old had been walking on St Mungo Avenue when he was approached by two men and forced to the ground, police said.
A wallet was then removed from the teenager’s bag, with a sum of cash and bank cards stolen, before the men headed in the direction of Buchanan Bus Station.
The teen was taken to hospital after sustaining a slashing injury during the incident, but was discharged after receiving treatment.
One of the suspects is described as being around 16 to 18-years-old, 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in, and of muscular build with prominent eyebrows, dark hair parted to the right and a beard.
He was wearing a bright red short-sleeved t-shirt, black jogging bottoms and black trainers.
The other is described as being 16 to 18-years-old, 5ft 9in to 5ft 11in, of muscular build with prominent eyebrows, dark hair parted to the right and clean shaven.
He also had a mole on the back of his neck near the hairline. He was wearing a black zip top with a black “V” across the chest, black jogging bottoms and black trainers.
Detective sergeant Raymond Hunter said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack and we are carrying out extensive enquiries to identify those responsible.
“We are examining the available CCTV footage and carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the area at present and would urge anyone with information who has not yet spoken to an officer to get in touch.
“Anyone who believes they may have seen two young males matching these descriptions in the Townhead or city centres areas is asked to come forward.
“Information can be passed on by calling 101, quoting incident 1629 of July 4, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
