Two men are in a serious condition in hospital after being attacked by a gang of youths.

The victims, aged 24 and 27, were assaulted after approaching five or six male youths who were involved in a "large scale disturbance'' in Drumilaw Way, Rutherglen, Glasgow.

The attack took place at a grass area opposite a USAVE store on the street at about 2.45am on Sunday.

The two men were taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries.

Hospital staff describe their condition as serious but not life-threatening.

Detectives said the youths involved in the attack were wearing hooded tops and had their faces covered.

Detective Constable Ross Philip at Cambuslang CID said: "There are a lot of houses that overlook the grass area and roadway at Drumilaw Way and I'd like to speak to anyone who may have been disturbed by noise at this time of night and may have looked out and witnessed the two men being attacked.''

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cambuslang CID via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
