Police are hunting a group who targeted two men by ramming cars at their vehicles.

The alarm was raised about the incident in Mossbank Avenue, Glasgow, at 5.25pm on Monday.

Two men, one in a silver Audi Q7 and the other in a blue Volkswagen Golf, were being targeted by a group of seven or eight men.

The suspects were ramming the victims’ cars with other vehicles, which included a dark coloured Range Rover Evoke and a silver coloured Volkswagen Touareg.

A witnessed described one of the men in the Volkswagen as being a young man wearing a dark hooded jacket with the hood pulled tight around his face.

Detective Inspector Jim Bradley from Greater Glasgow CID said: “This was a reckless incident in a residential street and would have been extremely frightening for members of the public who witnessed it.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Mossbank Avenue around 5.25pm yesterday and may have seen what happened, or noticed the cars described prior to or following the incident, to please get in touch.

“I would also ask any motorists with dashcams to check their footage in case they have captured anything which may be of significance to the investigation.”

The silver Audi Q7 was found abandoned in Mossbank Avenue and was badly damaged.

The suspects are believed to have left Mossbank Avenue onto Royston Road and either turned east towards Cumbernauld Road in Stepps or west towards Provanmill or Robroyston.
