Bystander stabbed in Sauchiehall Street brawl
Written by News on 11th September 2018
A man was stabbed in the leg during a large-scale disturbance in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The 39-year-old was standing outside a takeaway when an altercation broke out between two groups of people at around 1.15am.
Several individuals were assaulted in the brawl, however the incident was not reported to police and both groups made off.
It was not until a short time later that the man, who had no connection to either group, discovered he had sustained an injury to his leg.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward, and say they have limited information on the appearance of the individuals involved.
They say one female had blonde hair, was wearing a black crop top, white skirt and knee-length socks.
Detective constable Mark Paterson said: “A man who had nothing to do with this incident has ended up being stabbed in the leg.
“Sauchiehall Street is a busy street with many revellers on nights out. I am asking anyone who was in the area around the time of this incident to contact us. They could have information which could prove vital in helping us trace the members of both groups.
“It’s possible people thought the incident wasn’t so serious, but an innocent bystander has been attacked by someone intent on causing harm, even though he had nothing to do with either group or the trouble that flared up between them.”
