Shocking video footage of an alleged knife assault in Glasgow has emerged online after a broad daylight attack earlier today.
The short clip shows two men brawling near parked cars in Keal Avenue, near Blairdardie Park, before one of them falls to the ground.
A woman with a dog runs up to the warring duo and appears to be shouting at them before a third man becomes involved.
Holding a dog lead and two plastic bags, he delivers a series of kicks to the head of the man that is lying on the ground.
He was pinned in place by his arm and appeared to be holding a bladed weapon.
The alarming footage, which the Record has chosen not to show in full, then shows him being disarmed and struck in the chest.
The male dog walker appears to start running away while the man remains on top of the injured man with the woman nearby.
The shocking attack took place near Blairdardie Park and was witnessed by stunned onlookers including women and local residents.
Police were called to the scene at around 10.30am and immediately locked down the area.
They later confirmed that two men, aged 41 and 39, had been taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment to their serious injuries.
Enquiries remain ongoing.
