Detectives are treating the stabbing of a man in a Glasgow park as attempted murder.

The 23-year-old is in a serious but stable condition in the city's Royal Infirmary after being attacked in Tollcross Park on Saturday.

He was with a 21-year-old man who was not injured.

The incident took place on a footpath near to the Leisure Centre at about 6.40pm.

Police are gathering CCTV footage from the area and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Sergeant John Semple said: ''We need to know exactly what has happened and why and we are still trying to piece together events which led to a man being assaulted.

''We believe the attack took place within Tollcross Park near to Wellshot Road, although both men came out of the park and sought help from a passing motorist.

''If you were in the park or the surrounding area in the early evening last night and saw or heard anything which you think may be related to this attack then please do get in touch with us.''
