Three men injured in Glasgow city centre race attack

Police are hunting up to nine white men who carried out a racially-motivated attack on three Asian men in Glasgow city centre at the weekend.

The victims, who are aged 30, 33 and 47, were attacked and verbally abused in St Vincent Street, near its Buchanan Street junction, at 03:20 on Sunday.

All three were taken to hospital. The eldest is still being treated and needs surgery for a severe ear wound.

The white men were said to be wearing polo tops and jeans.

Det Con Stuart Nutt, of Police Scotland, said: "It is thought that the group of men responsible had been walking eastbound along St Vincent Street prior to carrying out this vicious attack.

"The area was particularly busy at the time of the incident with people leaving the many pubs and clubs in the area."

He asked anyone with information to contact police.
