Machete-wielding gang fracture man's skull in attack
A 31-year-old man was assaulted by ten men outside the Barony Hall in Glasgow.
A man suffered a fractured skull and was slashed during an attack by a gang of ten men with machetes.
The assault happened outside the Barony Hall in High Street, Glasgow.
A 31-year-old man was approached by a man with a machete who attacked him before another nine joined in with similar weapons at 10.30pm on Saturday.
The group then ran off before members of the public found the victim and called for an ambulance.
The man was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary with a fractured skull and slash wounds to his body.
Constable Craig Muir said: "It appears that this was a pre-planned and targeted attack and extensive enquiries are underway to establish the full circumstances surrounding what happened.
"This level of violence in the middle of a busy city centre street is completely unacceptable and I am urging members of the public who were nearby on Saturday night to please think back and consider whether you saw anything at all suspicious.
"The area would have been relatively busy with pedestrians and motorists around the time of the incident and I would like to speak to anyone who noticed some sort of disturbance or a group of men, possibly running down the street.
"I would also ask any motorists with dash-cams to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance."
