POLICE: Witness appeal after attempted murder in Dalmuir

By Democrat reporter

Police in Clydebank are appealing for witnesses after a man was stabbed.

The incident happened around 1.45am on Thursday, 29 October and is believed to have started in the Ottawa Crescent area. A group of around 12 people were outside a block of flats.

A 22-year-old man was then chased from Ottawa Crescent by another man towards the central reservation on the A814, Dumbarton Road, where he was seriously assaulted.

The 22-year-old suffered a serious chest injury and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

The suspect was dressed in all black.

Detective Sergeant Bruce Fyfe, of Clydebank CID, said: “We are treating this as an attempted murder and we’re appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to contact us.

“The victim was wearing a red jacket and despite the time of the incident, the disturbance outside the flat might have attracted attention with other residents as well as drivers on the A814.

“This type of violence shouldn’t be tolerated in the community so we would encourage people with any information to let us know.”

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 0154 of 29 October 2020 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
