A man has been stabbed while walking along a street in Glasgow.

The 46-year-old was in Duke Street near Barrack Street in the city's east end when he was assaulted.

Police said he was stabbed after being involved in an altercation with another man at around 12.50pm on Saturday.

The victim is being treated at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where medical staff describe his condition as stable.

Detective Constable Gill Alexander said: "There were a lot of people around the area at the time of the incident so it's possible someone might have seen the assault or indeed the suspect making off along Duke Street towards Bellgrove Street afterwards.

"The suspect is described as white, of thin or gaunt appearance, with short, black hair. He was wearing a black jacket, possibly a leather one.

"Any witnesses to the attack or anyone who recognises the description of the suspect can contact Shettleston CID via 101 quoting reference number 1999 of the 6 July 2019.

"Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted in confidence on 0800 555 111."
