Police are appealing for witnesses after a young-woman was injured in an unprovoked pub glass attack.

The 20-year-old was in The Social in Glasgow city centre on Sunday night when the incident took place at around 10.45pm.

As she was standing at the bar an older woman threw a drink, with the contents hitting a 21-year-old in the face and the glass smashing on the 20-year-old leaving her with a hand injury.

The suspect then made off from the scene and was last seen turning right from Royal Exchange Square towards Queen Street.

The victim attended the Glasgow Royal Infirmary where she was treated for her injuries.

The 21-year-old woman did not require any medical treatment.

Police are now looking to trace the woman responsible who is described as being in her 30’s with an average build and dyed red or burgundy hair.

At the time of the incident she was wearing black leggings, black top and long black cardigan.

She also had a distinctive tattoo sleeve on her left arm.

Detective Constable Paul Campbell at Stewart Street CID said:“This was a totally unprovoked attack which has left a young woman with a serious hand injury.

“There must have been people in the bar area who witnessed this incident or may even have noticed the suspect in the bar prior to the attack taking place and I urge them to contact police immediately.”
