Cops’ plea af­ter new Spring­hall stab­bing

Rutherglen Reformer - - FRONT PAGE - Marc McLean

A man was stabbed in Spring­hall at the week­end – just a few hun­dred yards from where an­other knife at­tack took place two months ago.

The 36-year-old was se­ri­ously as­saulted with the blade in Strath­more Gar­dens between 1.30am and 2am on Sun­day.

The vic­tim was taken to Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Hairmyres and it is un­der­stood he has since been re­leased.

The crime scene is very close to the lo­ca­tion of an­other knife as­sault, where a 29-year-old man was set upon in Cru­achan Road on July 19.

That was the lat­est in a spate of knife at­tacks in the Spring­hall area.

This week, Po­lice Scot­land are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion to catch the vi­o­lent thug who struck on Sun­day.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Deb­bie Walker, of Cam­bus­lang CID, said: “Of­fi­cers are cur­rently try­ing to es­tab­lish a de­tailed de­scrip­tion of the sus­pect and have been check­ing the area for CCTV and mak­ing doortodoor en­quiries.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice on 101, or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
