A man has been left with head injuries after being seriously assaulted in Clydebank.

At around 2.45am, officers were called to a report of a 25-year-old man seriously injured outside a petrol station on Glasgow Road.

The man was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he is being treated for head injuries. 

Police are now appealing for witnesses and have said they are keen to speak to four men who were spotted talking to the injured man.

Detective Sergeant David Meikle, of Clydebank Police Office, said: “At this early stage we are gathering as much information as we can to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident. Officers have been carrying out enquiries in the area and gathering CCTV footage to gain further details.

“This is a busy road and I would urge any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to come forward, and I would also ask anyone driving by around the time of the attack who has dash-cam footage to get in touch. Police are particularly interested in speaking with four men, all in their early to mid-twenties, who were seen speaking to the injured man on Glasgow Road.”

Any witnesses should contact Clydebank Police Office through 101 quoting reference number 0646 of February 23.
