Man breaks ankle in unprovoked Glasgow attack

A man suffered a broken ankle after being pushed to ground and punched in an unprovoked attack in Glasgow.

The incident happened at about 9.45pm on Saturday May 4 in the Trongate area of the city.

A 25-year-old man was pushed to the ground and punched in the face by another man, who then made off towards Argyle Street near to Central Station.

The victim was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where he was treated for a broken ankle and facial injury.

Detective Constable Leigh-Anne Sutherland said: “This would appear to be a totally unprovoked attack which has left the young man with serious injuries.

“The city centre would have been busy at the time of the attack and therefore I’m anxious to speak to anyone who either witnessed the incident or anyone who may have seen the culprit afterwards.”

The culprit is described as white, around 5ft 9ins or 5ft 10ins, in his mid to late 30s with a stocky build and shaved head. He was wearing blue jeans and a blue jumper.
