A MAN has been left with serious injuries following an 'attempted murder' in Whiteinch.

The 28-year-old was on a cycle path near Curle Street and the Jordan Street bridge when he was attacked on Wednesday.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital at around 1.50pm. Staff have described his condition as stable.

Detectives are now keen to identify a man seen in the area who is described as being white, around 27-30-years-old, 5ft 10in tall, of slim build with short dark hair.

He was wearing a white long sleeved top at the time.

Detective Inspector Craig Warren, of Greater Glasgow CID, said: "Enquiries are at an early stage and we are keeping an open mind about the motive and whether this attack, which we are treating as an attempted murder, was targeted at the victim.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed this incident. We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was using the cycle path around the time of the attack.

"We believe that there were two cyclists in the vicinity at the time, possibly a father and son, who have seen the incident or those involved."
