At­tack ap­peal

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

A man was left with a bro­ken wrist after be­ing tar­geted by three men in a sav­age street at­tack.

The vic­tim, 33, re­quired hos­pi­tal treat­ment after he was pum­melled by the gang.

He was pounced on after dark while he walked along Main Road, Elder­slie.

The thugs es­caped in a red car after the beat­ing.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Brian Seg­gie is in­ves­ti­gat­ing and says the pub­lic could hold the key to catch­ing the at­tack­ers.

He said:“This was a vi­cious at­tack on one man by three at­tack­ers.

“He had to be treated in hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent.

“This was a main road and, al­though it was late, we hope the pub­lic may have seen or heard what hap­pened.

“If you saw any­thing out of the or­di­nary in the area be­fore, dur­ing or after the in­ci­dent, please come for­ward.”

The man was as­saulted near to the Post Of­fice be­tween 10pm and 10.30pm on Fri­day.

He was taken to the Royal Alexan­dra Hos­pi­tal in Pais­ley.

Po­lice be­lieve the trio made off in a red car, pos­si­bly a Ford Fi­esta.

They are de­scribed as wear­ing dark cloth­ing and pos­si­bly had their faces cov­ered.

Of­fi­cers are scour­ing CCTV in a bid to track down the gang.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call Po­lice Scot­land on 101 or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
