A vulnerable man was left “extremely shaken” after being assaulted by two men in Glasgow city centre.

The 46-year-old suffered minor injuries when he was accosted by the pair on Gordon Street around 6.30pm on Sunday.

A passer-by came to help the victim following the incident and waited with him until emergency services arrived.

He was treated at the scene and did not require further attention at hospital, but an appeal has now been launched to find those responsible.

The suspects are described as white and thought to be in their early 20s, with one said to be wearing an orange top at the time of the attack.

Police say they are also keen to speak to the man who came to the victim’s aid.

Constable Lauren Sloan said: “It is vital we trace the individuals responsible and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen the incident, or anyone who matches the descriptions of the suspects in the area, to come forward. 

“We are also particularly keen to speak to a man who came to the aid of the victim and would ask him to contact officers. 

“We are continuing with extensive CCTV enquiries and there will be additional patrols in the area.” 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference number 3261 of Sunday, June 19 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
