Man stabbed during car attack in Pollokshields

A 31-year-old man was stabbed in his car after being attacked by three men from another vehicle.

The assault happened in Fotheringay Road, in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow, at about 21:30 on Saturday.

The victim was a rear seat passenger in a blue Mercedes car travelling west along Fotheringay Road.

Before the attack, an exchange of words had taken place between the occupants of the Mercedes and a light-coloured car, possibly a Volkswagen Golf.

The "Golf" had been driving towards the Mercedes from the opposite direction.

'Busy time'

Three men then got out of the "Golf" and began attacking the 31-year-old man in the Mercedes. The other two occupants of the Mercedes were not hurt.

The injured man was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he was treated for a stab wound before being released.

The three suspects were described as being of Asian appearance.

Det Con Stuart MacLennan, from Police Scotland, said: "This incident occurred at a fairly busy time on a Saturday night and, as such, I appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Fotheringay Road at this time to think back to whether they saw the suspects getting out of their car and arguing with the occupants of the Mercedes car."

Anyone with information should contact CID at Cathcart Police office via 101.
