A man has been taken to hospital with head injuries after a gang of three men assaulted him in South Lanarkshire.

At around 4.10pm on Friday, the 35-year-old was walking along Scotia Crescent, Larkhall, when he was approached by three men who attacked him. 

They then ran off in the direction of Abbotsford Avenue.

The injured man was taken by ambulance to Wishaw General Hospital where he is being treated for lacerations to his head.

The suspects are all described as white, between 20 and 30-years-old and wearing dark clothing.

One of the men was around 6ft 2in, of slim build and bald. Another of the suspects was around 5ft 8in, of medium build and wearing a black skip cap.

Detective constable Davy MacFarlane, from Cambuslang Police Office, said: "Enquiries are being carried out in the local area and officers have been gathering CCTV footage to gather more information on this assault. 

"There would have been people in the local area on Friday afternoon around the time of the attack who may have seen these three man acting suspiciously.

"I would ask any witnesses or anyone with information to contact Cambuslang Police Office through 101 quoting reference number 2046 of November 17."
