POLICE in Glasgow are demanding drinkers hand over mobile phone footage of an attempted murder outside a nightclub.
The victim was celebrating his 21st birthday when he was stabbed in the early hours of Sunday morning.
He had been out with his friends at Tunnel nightclub in Mitchell Street, Glasgow when he got into an argument with man and a woman on the street outside at around 3am.
He tried to flee but he was chased by the suspects up towards St Vincent Street.
The man is now in a serious but stable in Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
Sickeningly several revellers filmed the assault and police say it is “imperative” that they hand over the footage.
Detective Inspector Fil Capaldi said: “A young man, out celebrating his birthday, has been violently attacked for no apparent reason. We have still to establish a motive for this assault, however, we know that this incident was captured, not only on CCTV, but also filmed by numerous people who were stood outside the club when the attack was taking place and there’s no doubt this footage would assist our investigation. I would urge anyone who was there, particularly those filming it, to contact police as a matter of urgency.
“This young man’s 21st birthday, which should have been celebratory night out to remember, will now be remembered for all the wrong reasons. I would appeal to anyone who was in the area to get in touch. It’s possible someone may have seen the man being chased by the two suspects and I would ask people to please come forward, even if you think your information is not important, it could prove to be a vital link in this inquiry.”
Police described the female suspect as being aged between 25 and 35, with a slim build.
She has dark shoulder length hair and was wearing a light coloured top with short sleeves and dark coloured jeans.
She also carried a silver coloured clutch bag.
The man is also aged between 25 and 35, white with a heavy build.
He had dark short hair and was wearing a light coloured shirt and dark coloured jeans.
He also had a black belt which may have been used in the attack.
