The only descriptions of the suspects so far are that they were all white, Scottish and in their mid to late 20s. One man had a grey hooded top on and another a dark baseball cap.Officers are currently carry out enquiries in to the attack and are checking CCTV and speaking to neighbours.

“The house is in a busy residential area with high rise flats nearby and I’m sure someone will have seen or heard the men either in the house or running to the car and driving off.

“It’s possible the car may have been driving about the streets before the attack so I would ask anyone who was in Castlebay Street or nearby yesterday afternoon to get in touch. I am particularly keen to hear from those who may have either mobile phone or dash-cam footage from around that time to call us.”
