Gang stab teenager at bus stop in Glasgow

A 15-year-old boy was seriously injured after being stabbed at a bus stop by a group of up to four teenagers, Strathclyde Police have said.

The incident happened at about 1245 BST in Paisley Road West at the junction with Midlock Street, Glasgow.

Officers said the group headed east along Paisley Road West in a blue car.

The victim was taken to Glasgow's Southern General Hospital suffering from stab wounds. He is said to be serious but stable.

DC Mark McLennan said there was no clear motive for the assault.

He added: "Officers are carrying out door-to-door enquiries and checking local CCTV to establish exactly what happened.

"The area would have been particularly busy at this time of day.

Therefore, I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Paisley Road West this afternoon and who witnessed the attack or saw anyone acting suspiciously to contact us."
