Four men attacked in Glasgow as they sit in car

Four men have been attacked as they sat in a car in the east of Glasgow.

They were assaulted after three or four other men smashed the windows of their silver VW Golf with bats and hammers in Briarwood Court, Mount Vernon.

After the attack, at about 20:00 on Friday, the victims made their way to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

The four men, aged 19, 20, 25 and 26, were treated and have since been released from hospital. Their attackers ran off and may have got into a car.

Det Con Gemma Lawrie said: "We are currently trying to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident which we believe was not a random attack.

"I would like to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of Briarwood Court around 20:00 last night and may have seen the suspects hanging about the area or anyone who saw them running off afterwards."
