Detectives appealing for witnesses after a man was knifed by a gang who then tried to mow him down with their car at Lambhill.

The attempted murder of the 40-year-old man happened two days ago.

Around 10.25pm on Wednesday, May 31, the man was walking at Hillend Road when a group of men armed with knives got out a dark coloured Volkswagen Golf and assaulted him.

Following this incident, the injured man then managed to make his way to Eriboll Crescent where he was deliberately driven at by the same car.

Emergency services attended and the injured man was taken by ambulance to hospital where he is being treated for lacerations. Hospital staff describe his condition as stable.
