A MAN was allegedly seriously hurt during a “murder bid” that took place in broad daylight.

On Monday, September 2, a 31-year-old man was found injured within a close on Stewart Street in Clydebank.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital to be treated for serious head injuries.

A member of the public phoned the police who attended to the incident, that took place “around midday”.

The male responsible for the alleged attack, aged 41, was traced.

He was arrested for attempted murder and held in custody to appear in Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

James Rae appeared in private, where he made no plea or declaration, and was remanded in custody. Prosecutors allege he assaulted his victim to severe injury, danger of life and attempted to murder him.
