A ‘tar­geted at­tack’

Hit-and-run in­quiries con­tinue

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

Po­lice in­quiries into a hit-and-run mur­der bid on a property ty­coon are on­go­ing.

Roy Wolfin (63), was mown down by a white Skoda Oc­tavia be­hind a row of shops in Ruther­glen three weeks ago.

The Re­former un­der­stands that Mr Wolfin has lost both his legs fol­low­ing the “tar­geted” at­tack in Kyle Square, Spit­tal.

A source at the time said the vic­tim’s in­juries were “ab­so­lutely bru­tal”.

Wolfin owns dozens of prop­er­ties and ran a pay­day loan shop in Glas­gow’s Pos­sil area which shut af­ter a cop raid.

Fol­low­ing the at­tack a ded­i­cated team of of­fi­cers was set up at Cam­bus­lang po­lice of­fice for any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion.

Po­lice also set up ad­di­tional pa­trols around the area.

A spokes­woman said at the time: “We are con­fi­dent that this was a tar­geted at­tack on the vic­tim who has been left with lifechang­ing in­juries.”

It is be­lieved that Mr Wolfin re­mains in Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal.

Cops are still treat­ing the at­tack as at­tempted mur­der and have ap­pealed for wit­nesses.

A spokes­woman con­firmed in­quiries are con­tin­u­ing.

She added: “Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact of­fi­cers on 101 or call Crimes­top­pers on 0800 555 111 where all call­ers will re­main anony­mous.”

In June, Lord Ad­vo­cate Frank Mulholland was slammed for al­low­ing Wolfin and eight other sus­pects to go free fol­low­ing a ma­jor po­lice probe into the no­to­ri­ous Daniel fam­ily.

A plea deal re­sulted in crime boss Jamie Daniel’s son Zan­der Suther­land, 26, ad­mit­ting one heroin deal­ing charge. He was jailed for 13½ years.
