Police are hunting for a group of men after a man was attacked in Glasgow city centre.

The 26-year-old suffered a serious head injury and was taken to hospital following an attack by around ten men on Sauchiehall Street at 1.20am on Sunday.

The group ran off onto Rose Street following the assault, and officers are now working to trace the men responsible. 

The men are described as white, being in their teens or early 20s.

One of the suspects was wearing a black hooded top with a white motif on the chest, dark trousers and red trainers with white soles.

Detective constable Matthew McCann said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area around the time of this attack to contact us.

“I know people might think we have all the information we need but that is not the case. It’s important we have all the details.

“Please contact us with any information you may have. It could lead us to identifying the men in the group. 

“A young man has sustained a serious injury and it’s imperative we trace those responsible for the attack.

“We are continuing to view relevant CCTV footage from the local area, however, I would urge anyone who was on Sauchiehall Street or Rose Street at the time, who has any personal footage that may assist our investigation, to contact us.”

If you have any information, call 101.
