Gang at­tack on work­men

Evening Times - - NEWS -

TWO work­men were at­tacked by a gang with weapons in Ruther­glen on Satur­day.

One of the work­man, 30, was left in­jured fol­low­ing the at­tack at around 1.30pm.

Po­lice say the two men were car­ry­ing out gar­den­ing work at an ad­dress in Browns­dale Road when they were ap­proached by a group of five or six men who at­tacked them with weapons.

The in­jured man was taken by am­bu­lance to the Queen Eliz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal where he was treated for an in­jury to his back, then later re­leased.

His 36-year-old work­mate man­aged to run away and was un­in­jured.

The only de­scrip­tion of the group of men re­spon­si­ble at this time is that they were wear­ing dark coloured cloth­ing.

In­quiries are con­tin­u­ing to gather more in­for­ma­tion on the men re­spon­si­ble.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Ste­wart Walton is ap­peal­ing to any­one who was in the area of Browns­dale Road around the time of the in­ci­dent on Satur­day af­ter­noon and saw this group of men, or wit­nessed the as­sault to come for­ward.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Cam­bus­lang Po­lice Of­fice through 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber 2009 of the 11th Novem­ber.
