POLICE are hunting three men following an unprovoked attack in Glasgow's East End.
A 28-year-old man was walking in Carmyle when he was seriously assaulted.
The attack happened around 10.30pm on Friday night.
The victim was walking in a lane between Montrose Avenue and Foxly Street when he was approached by three men. He initially stepped to the side to let the first man pass but the second man struck him with a knife.
The 28-year-old suffered a cut to his hand. The men then made off in the direction of Estate Road.
The man was treated at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and was later released.
The suspects were white, around 20-21-years-old. One was 5 ft 8in with a slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top and tracksuit bottoms with white trainers.
The second man was 5 ft 11in with a slim build and short dark hair. He was wearing a black Adidas tracksuit with white or silver stripes and white trainers.
While the third was 5 ft 10in with a medium build, dark blue tracksuit. He is described as having a large flat nose.
Detective Constable Russell Kerr, who is leading the investigation, said: "This was a random attack on a man walking home. There does not appear to be any motive.
"This lane is well known to locals and I am appealing to anyone who may have been in the lane at the time the attack took place or who may have been in Montrose Avenue or Foxly Street and seen the three suspects to come forward."
