Pizza factory worker stabbed on street while walking dog
The 29-year-old man staggered into a nearby shop for help following the attack in Glasgow.
A pizza factory worker was left fighting for his life after being stabbed outside his work in a murder bid.
The 29-year-old man staggered into a shop for help after being attacked by a man while walking his Husky in Lambhill, Glasgow.
The victim spoke to a woman who got out of a car before a man who was with her repeatedly stabbed him near the Victor Pizza Company on Kilfinan Street at 10pm on Monday.
The pair then got back into the Ford Fiesta and drove off.
Sergeant Larry Dempsey said: "From our enquiries so far we know that the injured man was in Kilfinan St, outside the local convenience store, when a white Ford Fiesta turned into the street and a man and a woman get out.
"When the man goes in to the shop, the injured man appears to have a conversation with the woman, described as white, with long dyed blond hair, wearing a pink and orange top and jeans, before she too goes into the shop.
"He then approaches the female driver of the car but is then confronted by the man from the car who then stabs him repeatedly before getting back into the car with the woman and driving off."
Police are still trying to find a motive behind the attack.

The sergeant added: "We still have to establish why he was attacked.
"We don't know at this time if all are known to each other or if this was as a result of what was said between him and the woman from the car.
"Officers have been carrying out enquiries in the area but are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area - numerous people are seen on CCTV in the street - or indeed anyone with dash-cam footage, especially people driving on Balmore Road, which is where the white Ford Fiesta sped off into after the incident.
"Whatever the reason for this attack, a man is critical in hospital and it is imperative we find the two people involved."

Speaking to STV News, the firm said: "He is certainly up awake and conscious now.
"He phoned one of the staff in here and they had a chat with him.
"The good thing is he is out of immediate danger.
"There is a shop just outside where it happened and that's where he eventually went to and then an ambulance was called from there.
"It was a bit of a shock to all of us but we're glad he is on the mend."
Forensics carried out investigations into the attack while the area was cordoned off.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "At around 10pm on Monday, police received a report of a man being injured in Kilfinan Street, Glasgow.
"Emergency services attended and the 29-year-old man was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
"Enquiries are ongoing to establish circumstances surrounding incident."
