Police investigating a street attack on a teenager in Glasgow have appealed for help in tracing the person responsible.

The 17-year-old was involved in a disturbance outside the G101 store and Alexandra Bar, on Duke Street, Dennistoun, at 17:55 on 23 January.

He suffered a serious neck injury and later underwent surgery at the city's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

The suspect is described as white, aged between 16 and 20 years old, with short dark hair.

At the time of the disturbance, he was wearing a dark blue or black track suit and dark trainers.

Busy street

The 17-year-old victim was wearing a baseball cap and dark jacket.

Police are reviewing CCTV images from the area in a bid to trace the attacker.

Det Con Jennifer Carey said: "Duke Street is an extremely busy street and on the day of the incident more people would have been in the area as Celtic was playing at home.

"From our inquiries, we know that the attack was witnessed by several people and there were a number of cars queuing at the junction of Duke Street at Millerston Street at the lights.

"I am appealing to these people to contact us, I'm sure they have information which could assist our investigation."
