Police in Greenock are appealing for information following an assault on two men by a gang wielding bladed weapons.
A 45-year-old and 37-year-old man were attacked at about 2000 BST on Sunday in the Inverclyde town.
The pair were in a car on Wren Road when they were attacked and seriously assaulted by a group of men.
Both men were taken to Inverclyde Royal Infirmary where the 45-year-old was kept in overnight and the 37-year-old was discharged after treatment.
DC Sharon Crawford said: "From the enquires we have already made, it would appear the two men were threatened by a group with bladed weapons and assaulted.
"I would ask anyone with any information on this attack to come forward to the police."
