Police are appealing for witnesses after two men were seriously assaulted in Paisley on Monday.

The men, aged 33 and 30, were walking in Glenburn Road when they were attacked by two men armed with weapons.

The attackers had got out of a maroon Citroen Berlingo before carrying out the assault.

Both victims were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

The 30-year-old received treatment for wounds to his arm, leg and stomach and was later released.

The 33-year-old was transferred to Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment to injuries to his head, shoulder and hand. His condition is described as stable.

One of the suspects is described as wearing dark clothing and a yellow and black skip hat.

Det Sgt Gordon McCrae said: "We are trying to establish a motive for this attack but believe that the victims were the intended targets."
