A suspect will stand trial accused of seriously assaulting a man at a strip club.

Thomas Murray, 33, allegedly carried out the attack on Callum Forrest at Diamond Dolls in Glasgow city centre.

Court papers state Murray, of Thornliebank, East Renfrewshire, struck Mr Forrest on the head with a glass.

It is claimed that Mr Forrest was knocked unconscious during the alleged assault which is said to be to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Murray faces a separate charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards police officers.

The allegations state Murray shouted, swore and uttered offensive remarks.

He is claimed to have also struck his head off a wall, uttered threats as well as struggled with officers Nikita Gavrilovs and Michael Speed.

The alleged offence is said to have been aggravated by prejudice relating to sexual orientation.

A final charge claims Murray assaulted both officers by lunging and attempting to strike them with his head.

The charge claims that this was racially aggravated.

Murray denies the three charges and will stand trial in March next year.
