Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Marc McLean

Po­lice have re­leased pho­tos of a man they want to speak to in con­nec­tion with a se­ri­ous as­sault that took place in Ruther­glen nine months ago.

The images of a dark-haired man aged 30 to 40 were dis­trib­uted last Thurs­day and Po­lice Scot­land say they be­lieve he will be able to as­sist them with their en­quiries.

At around 2.20 pm on Sun­day, Jan­uary 14, , a 33-year-old man was cross­ing Castlemilk Road, near to Kings­bridge Drive, when he was as­saulted by an­other man.

The vic­tim was taken to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal where he was treated for se­ri­ous fa­cial in­juries.

The man po­lice be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with their en­quiries is around 6ft tall, of medium build, and was wear­ing a dark-coloured jacket and jog­ging bot­toms. He speaks with a lo­cal ac­cent.

Po­lice Con­sta­ble Alan Smith, of Ruther­glen po­lice of­fice, said: “We are ap­peal­ing for the man in the im­age to come for­ward, or any­one who knows of him to get in con­tact. We be­lieve he may be able to as­sist us in this en­quiry.

“Crimes like this will not be tol­er­ated and of­fi­cers have been check­ing CCTV as well as mak­ing door to door en­quiries to trace the per­son re­spon­si­ble.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Po­lice via 101, quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 2018 of Sun­day 14 Jan­uary 2018.

Al­ter­na­tively you can con­tact Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111 where in­for­ma­tion can be given anony­mously.

Mean­while, po­lice are still hunt­ing a vi­o­lent thug who stabbed a man out­side a Ruther­glen pub last Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The 32-year-old vic­tim was stand­ing out­side The Farme Cross pub – for­merly The Wee Mill – in Baronald Street when he was as­saulted.

He suf­fered a stab wound and was rushed to hos­pi­tal. Po­lice said this week that the man was in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman added: “This in­ci­dent is cur­rently be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by CID.”
