A man left injured after an attack in the east end of Glasgow has spoken out against his attackers.
George Murray, a painter and decorator from Easterhouse, was left with two broken nails, a cut eyebrow, and a mild headache that required two paracetamol the following morning.
“It’s just embarrassing for them,” he bemoaned, “three guys jump me and yet the main injury I’ve suffered is the loss of pride in Glaswegian’s ability to fight”.
Mr Murray wasn’t just critical of the feeble amount of pain inflicted on him, but also the attackers style.
“All three of them came at me head on but then only one of them was attacking me at a time. It was like a scene from a Hollywood movie where the bad guys line up one by one to be taken down by the hero.”
The incident happened just yards from The Bridge Inn pub on Easterhouse Road, however it is not believed the suspects were drinking in the pub that night as their patrons know how to handle themselves.
Detective Sergeant Hugh Thomson, of the Greater Glasgow Division of Police Scotland, confirmed they were looking for three suspects in connection with the incident.
“We do not believe there is any threat to the public from these individuals, in fact we are concerned they may end up harming themselves. For this reason we ask people to be on the look out for these characters who can be easily identified by their Voi clothing, v-shaped haircuts, and the embarrassed looks on their faces.”
Meanwhile, Mr Murray has extended an invitation to his attackers to join him at a local Muay Thai boxing night, or perhaps a session of Zumba first.
“There’s really no hard feelings, I just want them to do better next time. There’s no reason a three on one mugging needs to be such a pathetic experience. With some coaching I think they could handle a teenager, or possibly even an adult female.”
