Renfrew dog walker hurt in street attack

Police have appealed for information after a dog walker was injured in an unprovoked street attack in Renfrew.

The 21-year-old man was attacked by two or three men while walking his two dogs near to the town's Craigielea Road and Rannoch Drive at about 23:00 on Monday.

He was treated for a head injury at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

One of the suspects is aged between 18 and 25 years old, about 5ft 10in tall, and was wearing a hooded tracksuit top. There is no description of the others.

Det Con Julie McGill, of Strathclyde Police, said: "This was a totally unprovoked attack on this young male who was simply taking his dogs for their last walk of the evening.

"The area where the incident happened is a quiet residential area with houses overlooking on both sides.

"We are checking CCTV in the area and have conducted door to door enquiries but would ask that anyone who witnessed the attack or who has any information that will help us with our enquiry to contact Paisley CID."
