Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to trace following a "violent assault" on a shopkeeper.

The 30-year-old victim was attacked during an altercation in Arkar Grocers, Ark Lane, in Glasgow's Dennistoun area, at about 14:45 on Sunday 3 January.

He required hospital treatment for serious facial injuries.

The man in the CCTV images is described as white, about 6ft tall and was wearing a dark waterproof jacket, blue jeans and white trainers.

Det Sgt Andrea Templeton, of Police Scotland, said: "This was a particularly violent assault on a man who was at his work and enquiries are continuing to find whoever is responsible.

"I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man in the images to contact police as we believe he may have information that could assist with our inquiries."
