Slashed in face for bid to calm row; CRIME.
A man was slashed in the face after trying to calm down two passersby having an argument. Police said the 30-yearold was waiting outside a takeaway in Glasgow's West End when he heard two men having a heated argument.
He tried to calm them down but one of the men slashed him across the face before running off.
He was taken to the city's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment where medical staff describe his condition as stable.
The attack took place on St George's Road, near to Claredon Place at about 9.50pm on Sunday.
Detective Constable Ashley Convery said: "The man sustained a significant facial injury which will leave a permanent scar.
"From what we know at the moment, the attack seems totally unprovoked."
