Womansuffers broken eye socket in horror attack
A WOMAN has suffered a fractured eye socket and an injured jaw after being attacked in broad daylight by two men at a Clydebank train station.
The 34-year-old had been walking across Drumry station bridge with another man, age 36, last Thursday when the pair were jumped.
The woman was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, suffering from injuries to both her eye and jaw, while the man reported being struck with “something sharp.”
John Hainey, the chair of Linnvale and Drumry Community Council, said the area is a “hotspot” for incidents and called for preventative measures to be taken to combat crime.
Mr Hainey, who lives on Vanguard Street, pinpointed the bridge at the station as a problem because it allows for a quick getaway.
He told our sister title the Clydebank Post: “We, over the years, have asked them if the cameras could see the bridge.
“The bridge appears to be an easy method for causing problems and disappearing over it in another direction.
“We had a camera on York Street, which would pick up people leaving the station, but that seems to have been removed.
“There’s no doubt that Drumry does seem to have more than its fair share of incidents. It’s not uncommon. We have a major police station comparatively near our area but we still get lots of things happening.”
Mr Hainey said the community council has asked for more cameras in troubled parts of Drumry but they also want to see a greater police presence.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed officers were called at 2.15pm after a 34-yearold woman and 36-year-old man were attacked by two men on a bridge over the tracks at Drumry station. Police are following a positive line of inquiry.
