Man bitten on face near nightclub

A 23-year-old man has been treated for a serious facial injury after being bitten in an attack outside a nightclub in Glasgow city centre.

Police said the man was standing near the front door of the Reflex bar on Renfield Street when he was approached by a man and a woman.

Det Insp Fil Capaldi described it as a "vicious and savage assault".

The officer said it was possible the attackers entered the bar after the assault at 2345 BST on Saturday.

Det Insp Capaldi appealed for witnesses to contact the police.

The male suspect was said to be about 25 to 30, about 6ft 1in, of slim build and with a shaven head.

He was described as having a gaunt appearance, with facial stubble and was wearing a white t-shirt.

The woman was 20 to 30 years old, about 5ft 5in, with very long, brown, highlighted hair.

Random attack

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old man was stabbed in an apparently random attack after he left a party in Woodend Road, Rutherglen, to go and meet his girlfriend, at about 2300 BST on Saturday.

He was attacked just after he left the front garden of the property, and managed to walk back into the party after the assault.

His friends took him to the Victoria Infirmary where he was treated for "terrible" stab wounds and is currently in a stable condition, police said.

Det Con Erin Renwick said: "From the information we have so far this appears to be a completely random attack, and the victim knows of no reason why this man would hurt him in this way.

"There were no words exchanged and no fight took place - the suspect simply attacked the man as he walked by."

A 26-year-old man was assaulted after an argument with two men outside the 'One-O-One' off-sales on Inveresk Street, Shettleston, Glasgow at about 0800 BST on Saturday.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Glasgow Royal Infirmary and then transferred to Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow, to be treated for a serious eye injury.
