At­tempted mur­der ar­rest

East Kilbride News - - NEWS - An­drea O’Neill

A 22-year-old man has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with an at­tempted mur­der in East Kil­bride.

The News re­ported how an early-morn­ing at­tack at a house in Lind­say­field last month left a 25-year-old man se­ri­ously in­jured.

Po­lice said they were treat­ing the in­ci­dent as at­tempted mur­der.

The lo­cal man was be­lieved to have been stabbed at a house party in Ap­ple­gate Drive at around 1.45am on Sun­day, Au­gust 6.

The prop­erty was sealed off through­out the day while de­tec­tives as­sessed the scene and of­fi­cers car­ried out door-to-door en­quiries in a bid to try and find out what hap­pened.

The al­leged vic­tim was taken to Hairmyres Hos­pi­tal where he is un­der­stood to have un­der­gone surgery. Staff de­scribed his con­di­tion at the time as ‘se­ri­ous’.

Of­fi­cers said at the time they were fol­low­ing a pos­i­tive line of in­quiry.

They ap­pealed to any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the in­ci­dent to come for­ward.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokes­woman said this week: “A 25-year-old man was se­ri­ously as­saulted around 1.45am on Sun­day, Au­gust 6 in Ap­ple­gate Drive, East Kil­bride.

“A 22-year-old man is sub­ject of a re­port to the procu­ra­tor fis­cal in con­nec­tion with this in­ci­dent.”
