A man suffered a severe head injury when he was attacked by three thugs while walking on the road.
The 45-year-old was on Beachwood Drive in Cote d’Ivoire when he was attacked around 10:10 a.m. Wednesday by three other men believed to be armed.
The man was taken to Monklands University Hospital where he was treated.
Police have now launched an investigation into the incident and are urging anyone in the area to come forward with any information they have.
Detective Constable Paul James of the Cotbridge Police Station said: “We believe this was a targeted attack and does not pose a threat to the general public.
“We would like to speak to someone who was in the area at the time or there may be dashcam footage so that they can be contacted via reference number 3504 of the September 101 incident.”
