Man attacked at grandmother’s house by hooded men with bladed weapon

Police are seeking two men who attacked another man with a bladed weapon at his grandmother’s house in Cumbernauld.

The incident at around 7.55am on Tuesday left the 27-year-old with injuries to his face and arm, before he was taken to hospital.

The man had been staying at the property on McGregor Road when the men, wearing hoodies, entered and attacked him while he was asleep in the bedroom.

They then made off from the scene as the man’s grandmother called the police.

Detective Sergeant Iain Sneddon said: “This attack took place in the middle of a sheltered housing complex and extensive enquiries are underway to trace the individuals involved.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area between 7am and 8am, and may have seen or heard anything at all suspicious, to please get in touch.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Coatbridge CID via 101, quoting incident number 0561 of Tuesday 18 December 2018.”
