The suspects are described as a white male, mid 20’s with short light brown/blonde hair. He was approximately 6’ tall, medium build and had two small scars on his face. (He was the attacker).

White male, aged 20’s – 30’s, stocky build with short brown hair.

Detective Inspector Suzie Chow at Paisley CID is appealing for witnesses. She said: “Paisley would have been busy at that time of the morning and I am sure passers-by would have witnessed this incident. I would appeal to anyone who was in West Buchanan Place around 11am yesterday morning and saw the attack or the two men sitting on the pavement to come forward.”

Any person with information is asked to telephone the CID at Paisley on the non emergency number 101. Alternatively telephone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where anonymity can be maintained.
