Appeal after 'racist attack' in Glasgow's Anniesland area

Police are hunting a man who carried out an alleged race attack in the west end of Glasgow.

The 30-year-old victim was walking with his sister at Anniesland Cross when the suspect made racial remarks and assaulted him at 16:00 on Tuesday.

The suspect then became involved in an altercation with several others before making off in an unknown direction.

He is described as being aged between 20 and 26, with short brown hair and was clean shaven.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a dark jacket, blue denims and a dark cap.

'Random attack'

Officers from Strathclyde Police are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and are currently gathering and reviewing local CCTV images.

Ch Insp Fraser Lamb said: "This was a totally random attack, and it's not clear why the suspect approached the man.

"It is not acceptable for people to think they can go around verbally or physically abusing other people and it's imperative we trace the man responsible.

"I would urge anyone who was in the area at the time to please get in touch with us - you may have vital information which could help us trace the suspect."
