A JustGiving page has been started for a Danish man who was mugged on a visit to Glasgow, to persuade him that "the world isn't full of idiots".

Janus Basnov was visiting Glasgow to attend the Glasgow SEO Meetup, a networking event.

But after he left the event, he was set upon by thugs and was left with bloody injuries to his face.

Now, the company hosting the event has set up a JustGiving page to raise £1000 to convince Janus that the people of Glasgow aren't as bad as the thugs who attacked him.

It has already raised more than £500.

Evening Times:

The post says: "So we hosted a Glasgow SEO Meetup on Wed the 13th of Feb, great turnout for the first event, great bunch of people that included Janus Basnov, how [sic] many would have met standing close to the bar.

"A Danish guy living in Scotland who came along to the event expecting some good knowledge and networking.

"Janus left the event around 10pm and was mugged and beaten up by a couple of guys.

"I've decided to make this page to get donations to buy Janus a gift, as a few of our close circle of SEO friends want to club together to show Janus that there is [sic] still good people out there and this is a one off incident, it so happened to happen in Glasgow at our first meetup, but anyone going to a meetup should be able to get along without this type of thing happening.

"Any donations would be welcome, lets show Janus that the world isn't full or [sic] idiots."

Lisa Graves, who donated £20 to the page, said: I’m so sorry and saddened to read this.

"It’s totally not your fault!!

"Nice thing to do and I hope J is physical and mentally better soon x"
