Detectives in Paisley are continuing enquiries after a man and a woman were struck by a car on Monday.

A 23-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman were struck by a car, a white or cream coloured Mini.

The car was found two days later in the Springhill area of Barrhead.

The car was damaged in the incident and officers are appealing for anyone who may have noticed the car to get in touch.

The victims were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, the woman suffered suspected broken ankles and broken ribs as she was run over by the car, while the man was left with injuries to his limbs.

Neighbours claim the frightening incident is part of a vendetta between rival crooks involved in Paisley’s drugs trade.

Police were called to the scene at around 11pm on Monday 11th May 2015 after receiving reports of a disturbance at Blackstoun Oval, Paisley.

Officers are still reviewing CCTV images in an effort to find out more information about the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Susie Chow said: “The motive for this attack is still not known and I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the Mini to contact us – the car was damaged in the crime and as a result people may have taken note of it. If you saw the car or if you have any information or knowledge regarding this incident, please contact us, your information could assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers in Paisley on the non-emergency police number, 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.
