The 29-year-old man was taken to Royal Alexandra Hospital and treated for stab wounds.

Police are checking CCTV footage from the High Street and surrounding areas and are encouraging witnesses to come forward.

'Motive unknown'

The suspects are both described as being in their 20s or 30s with a stocky build.

One was about 5ft 9 and wearing a tight top.
