A man has been stabbed in what police believe was a ‘targeted assault’ in Glasgow this afternoon.

Officers say there is no wider threat to the public following the incident on Argyle Street, which has been cordoned off.

Police were called to the scene, at the junction with James Watt street, just after midday.

Inspector Gareth Griffiths said: ‘We were called around 12.10pm on Sunday, 28 June, to a report of an assault in Argyle Street, Glasgow.

‘Officers are currently at the scene. We believe this was a targeted assault and we do not believe there is a threat to the wider public.

‘This is not being treated as linked to the incident in West George Street, Glasgow, on Friday June 26, or any nearby hotels or accommodation.’

On Friday, six people, including a policeman, were stabbed at a hotel in the city centre before the attacker was shot dead in an incident the police said they were not treating as terrorism.

A suspect was shot by officers during the incident and has been named as Badreddin Abadlla Adam, 28, from Sudan.
