Taxi Driver Stabbed In Glasgow

Officers are appealing for information and witnesses after a taxi driver was attacked and robbed in Easterhouse, Glasgow on Saturday 5 March 2016.

The 35 year old was found in Baldragon Road at around 1.10pm yesterday.

He'd collected two young men from Dunphail Road and had been due to drop them off in Lochend Road, when they attacked him.

The man suffered stab wounds and was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where his condition is described as stable.

Following the attack, the two suspects ran off towards the Bishop Loch area.

The suspects are described as white with local accents. Both are believed to be either 18 or 19 years of age and have dark hair. Both were wearing blue coloured jackets. One of the men is described as having bushy eyebrows.

Officers are in the process of gathering CCTV images to review in order to gain additional information on the two suspects.

Detective Constable Alan Watt said:

'This despicable attack took place just yards from local shops in Lochend Road. It's imperative we trace the two men responsible. I am appealing to local people in the area who may have seen something to contact us. Were you in one of the shops, did you see the two men running off? If you have any information or knowledge regarding the suspects or the crime then please do get in touch.''

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at the Robbery Unit in Pollok on 101. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
