Police are this week appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted in Maxwell Crescent, Blantyre.
The incident took place on the evening of Halloween, Wednesday 31st October 2018 around 7.45pm, when trick or treaters would have been out.
In the cowardly attack, it took 3 men to gang up on one passing male. The 3 men committing the unprovoked assault were dressed in dark clothing with one wearing a scarf over his mouth. It was this person who attacked the 39 year old innocent man who was left injured.
Sergeant Jon McLeish said, “With this being Halloween evening, officers are of the belief that there were people in the area at the time and request that you get in touch with any helpful information that can identify even one of the people undertaking the attack.”
Police investigation continues. If YOU know more you can report them anonymously on Crimestoppers 101 or on 0800 555 111.
