Police are appealing for information following the attempted murder of a man in the East End of Glasgow on Friday.

Around 3pm yesterday afternoon, a 33 year old man and two male friends were walking along Amulree Street, Shettleston, near to the supermarket, when a large white car, possibly a 4x4, drove at speed towards them chasing them into Pettigrew Street where the 33 year old was struck by the car which made off at speed back along Armulee Street.

Detective Colin Thapar, Shettleston CID, is leading the enquiry. He said:

“Although the man, who we believe was the intended target of the attack, was not seriously injured and didn’t seek hospital treatment, to deliberately drive a large car at someone in the middle of a busy street in the middle of the afternoon is reckless and dangerous and could have involved at lot more people.

“However, thankfully no one else was injured and so far we have had a good response from the public who were around, however, we are still keen to get information, especially dash-cam footage, of the incident.

“If you were in or around Amulree Street/Pettigrew Street, near the supermarket, or have information that would help our enquiry, then please contact Shettleston CID via 101. Please quote incident number 2394 of the 19 July 2019 when calling. Alternatively, if for any reason you do not wish to speak to the police directly, then a call can be made in confidence to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
