Detectives at Johnstone are continuing enquiries and appealing for witnesses after a 22-year-old man was stabbed in the neck several times in Johnstone on Tuesday 6th June 2017.

Around 9.45am police were called to a report of a man assaulted in Dimity Street near to its junction with High Street in Johnstone.

The injured man was taken by ambulance to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley where he received treatment for neck and shoulder injuries before being released.

Two men were responsible for the attack – one was wearing dark coloured clothing and a beanie hat and he was last seen within a silver coloured Honda Civic car.

Detective Constable Louise Kane is appealing for any witnesses. She said: “At the time of the attack, the High Street would have been quite busy and I would urge anyone who witnessed this incident or observed the car in the area to contact police immediately.”
