Man seriously assaulted with glass in Glasgow bar

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 30-year-old man was seriously assaulted in a bar in Glasgow's Royal Exchange Square.

The incident happened in the Social Bar at about 00:30 on Sunday.

The man attempted to intervene in an argument between his friend and the suspect when he was struck with a glass across his face.

He was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and treated for serious injuries.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident.

The male suspect was described as being white, aged 25-30, about 5ft 10in tall, of slim build.

Suspect injury

He also had stubble and an undercut hairstyle. At the time of the incident he was wearing a white shirt, black trousers and brown shoes. He was also wearing a distinctive blue denim jacket with a faux fur collar.

After the incident, the suspect made his way through Glasgow City Centre in the direction of Queen Street.

Det Con Gordon Walker said: "This violent act left a man requiring hospital treatment for serious lacerations to his face. It also resulted in the suspect sustaining what we believe is a serious injury to his right hand.

"This incident was witnessed by a large number of people within the bar and we understand that the suspect was aided by a number of persons outside the bar on Royal Exchange Square, who attempted to elevate his hand in an effort to stem the bleeding."

Police have asked for anyone with information to contact them.
