Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Mur­der squad de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an al­leged at­tack after a Pais­ley man was left se­ri­ously ill in hospi­tal.

Of­fi­cers were called out to the town’s Grampian Av­enue, where they dis­cov­ered a 39-year-old man who had suf­fered a se­vere head in­jury.

It’s un­der­stood he was taken to Pais­ley’s Royal Alexan­dra Hospi­tal be­fore be­ing trans­ferred to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Hospi­tal in Glas­gow.

Doc­tors dis­cov­ered a bleed on his brain and the man, who has not been iden­ti­fied by cops, un­der­went emer­gency surgery, after the or­deal around 8.40pm on Tues­day.

His con­di­tion was last night de­scribed as se­ri­ous but sta­ble.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman last night said de­tec­tives were treat­ing the in­ci­dent as at­tempted mur­der.

A 40-year-old man is ex­pected to ap­pear at Pais­ley Sher­iff Court in con­nec­tion with at­tempted mur­der charges to­day.
