Man, 62, rushed to hospital with ‘life-changing’ injuries after murder bid


A 62-year-old man has sustained life-changing injuries after an attempted murder in the East End of Glasgow last week.

Around 8.30pm on Friday September 10, the man was walking on Whitevale Street, near Slatefield Street, in Dennistoun when he was attacked by two men.

He was rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary and has sustained life-changing injuries.

Medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

Cops are treating the attack as attempted murder and are hunting for two suspects following the “horrendous” and “unprovoked” assault.

Detectives believe the attackers were on the number 60 First bus coming from Clydebank to Easterhouse and got off in Armadale Street.

Both men were seen in the company of two women at the time – one of whom was wearing a bright yellow jacket.

The men attacked their victim repeatedly before fleeing the scene.
