Man injured in Glasgow random bottle attack

A man suffered a head injury when he was hit over the head with a bottle in a random attack in Glasgow.

The 38-year-old was walking along Tollcross Road, just outside the library, near Parkhead Cross at 14:30 on Saturday when he was attacked.

He was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he is being treated for a head injury.

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: "This assault appears completely random with no known motive."

The suspect is described as white, about 6ft 2in (1.88m) tall, of slim build with a "beer belly", and with short brown hair.

He was wearing white shorts and white trainers, but no top.

Det Con Ross Jamieson, of Strathclyde Police, said: "I know the attack would have been witnessed by several people. This area is always very busy and given that it was such a warm, sunny day yesterday, there would have been plenty of people around.

"It's also very busy with passing traffic and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time or who has any information or knowledge about the crime or the suspect to get in touch with us."
