Man Stabbed By Gang In Clydebank
Detectives in Clydebank are for information after a 40 year old man was attacked on 1 January 2016.
The 40 year old was walking along Onslow Road, near to the railway bridge at Drumry Railway Station at around half 5 in the morning when he was attacked by a group of people.
Emergency services attended and the man, who suffered stab wounds, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. Medical staff describe the man's condition as serious and he is currently in the high dependency unit.
Officers have been carrying out enquiries and have been gathering and reviewing CCTV from around the area.
Enquiries carried out so far have revealed that there were various people in the vicinity at the time of the attack.
Detective Inspector Grant MacLeod said:
"This appears to be a totally random attack, with no apparent motive, leaving a man seriously injured. Our enquires have revealed that despite it being fairly early in the morning, there were various people in the vicinity at the time of the attack and I am appealing to these people to get in touch. It's possible you can provide information on the suspects which would assist our investigation in locating those responsible for this violent attack."
Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Clydebank Police Office on 101. Alternatively, please pass on any information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where you can give details and remain anonymous.
The 26 year old was first targeted in Briarscroft Road.
Euan Johnston was shot in his car last month.
The family of three crash victims took their case for the 59-year-old to be put on trial to the Appeal Court in Edinburgh earlier this year.
