Police investigating Springburn hit and run

Police are appealing for information after a 36-year-old woman sustained minor injuries during a debiberate hit and run incident on Broomfield Road, in Springburn.

The woman was crossing Broomfield Road, close to Broomfield Court, at around 8pm on Tuesday, October 7, when she stepped into the path of a dark car.

The vehicle braked and a small argument took place between the driver and the woman.

The vehicle then sped off, turned around and deliberately drove towards the woman, injuring her as a result. The woman was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where she left following minor treatment.

The vehicle left the area in an unknown direction. The car is described as a silver or grey Mercedes. The driver is described as an Asian man, aged 20 to 30 with short dark hair shaven at the sides and longer on the top.

Detective Sergeant Ross Jamieson at Shettleston Police Office said: “This was a traumatic incident for the woman involved and she was incredibly lucky not to have been more seriously injured.”

“Police enquiries are continuing. We are analysing CCTV and conducting enquiries in the local area. If you were in the area at the time and have any information relating to the car or driver involved, please get in touch with myself at the Shettleston Police Office via the 101 number.
