One resident, whose garden looks onto street where the incident took place, said he heard ‘a lot of noise’ before police attended.

He added: “We heard boys running about making noise but we didn’t know anything bad had happened until the police taped it off.”

Local businesses on the street were closed when the incident unfolded, near to Bellgrove Train Station.

One local worker, who asked not to be named, added: “We have no idea what happened but there’s a big bit taped off so it must be serious.

“It’s normally quite quiet around here.

“It’s worrying with the other incidents in the East End happening in the last few days.”

A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 1.20am to attend an incident in Brandon Street in Glasgow. 

"We dispatched one ambulance and a Paramedic Response Unit to the scene.

"We transported one male patient in his forties to Glasgow Royal Infirmary."
