Man attacked with knife in own home in Glasgow

A 52-year-old man has been attacked with a knife after finding two men in his home in Glasgow.

The man was alone in the living room of his house in Drumcross Road, Pollok, at about 1810 BST on Saturday when he heard a noise coming from the hall.

He discovered two men and when he asked what they wanted, one of them struck him with a knife, leaving him with an arm injury.

Strathclyde Police believe it was a case of mistaken identity.

They have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

Det Con Nick Gribben said: "This would appear to be a totally unprovoked attack on an innocent man.

"At this time we strongly believe that the 52-year-old man was not the intended target and was merely caught up in an act of mistaken identity.

"I'd like to speak to anyone who may have seen the suspects hanging around Drumcross Road prior to this incident taking place or anyone who may have seen them leaving the house afterwards.

"It is not known whether they may have got into a vehicle."
