Man, 22, stabbed in Glasgow city centre attack

A 22-year-old man has been stabbed during a "totally unprovoked" attack in Glasgow city centre.

The man and his friend were confronted by two men outside Bistro, in Renfield Street, at its junction with West George Street, at 02:30 on Thursday.

The victim was punched on the head and body and stabbed. He was released after treatment at the Royal Infirmary. His friend was not injured in the attack.

Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

Both suspects, who are described as white and in their early 20s, were last seen in West George Street.

The first man is described as about 5ft 10in tall, of stocky build and was wearing a grey hooded tracksuit and green trainers.

The second man was about 5ft 10in tall, with short black hair and a round face. He was wearing a black tracksuit and white top with black sleeves.

Det Con Paul Murray, of Strathclyde Police, said: "This would appear to be a totally unprovoked attack on the 22-year-old man, who had been in Glasgow city centre with a friend."

He urged anyone who saw the attack to contact police.

"I'd also like to speak to anyone who may recognise the descriptions of those responsible, or who may have seen them hanging around the area prior to the attack taking place, or even running off afterwards in West George Street," he added.
