Teenagers seriously injure man and attack bus with machete in Glasgow
Two males have been arrested in connection with the attack.

TWO MALES AGED 15 and 16 years old have been arrested in connection with a machete attack in Dennistoun, Glasgow.

A 31-year-old man suffered serious head injuries after being attacked by two teenagers wearing grey hoodies, one of whom was armed with a machete more than a foot long. His condition is stable and he remains in hospital, said police.

The pair also allegedly threatened a 23-year-old man and robbed his rucksack. He was not injured. A taxi driver tried to help the man, but he was also threatened and the two men broke the window of his taxi.

It appears that the teenagers then went and targeted a bus and other vehicles in the east end of Glasgow.

Talking to Herald Scotland, Kris Goodman, 30, who was travelling on the bus with his five-year-old daughter during the incident, said: “They were just going up to them and properly going for them.

“Then I saw them going for the bus I was on. They hit the driver’s side window.

They were hitting vehicles as if they really wanted to scare people.
