A father and son were subjected to a "very scary" violent assault by a group of young people.

The 19-year-old had arrived at Westerton station in Bearsden to collect his family around 10pm on Monday, February 12.

On arrival, the group launched an "unprovoked attack" by punching, kicking and throwing a glass bottle at him.

They then began to throw bags of grit at him and his father.

When the pair fled to their car, along with two other members of the family, the youths attacked the vehicle until they drove away.

Investigating officer PC Nicholas Duffy said: "This was a very scary ordeal for the family, who were subjected to a totally unprovoked attack.

"We will not stand for this kind of behaviour and I urge anyone who witnessed the assault, or who thinks they may have information which could help the investigation, to get in touch."

British Transport Police urged anyone with information to contact them on 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 651 of February 12.
