A ‘targeted attack’
Hit-and-run inquiries continue
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.
