DOUBLE SERIOUS ASSAULT - KILMARNOCK
Police Scotland is appealing for information after two men, aged 52 and 67, were seriously assaulted at a flat in Jeffrey Street, Kilmarnock on Sunday 18 March 2018.
Around 7.20 pm the two men were within the property when three men turned up at the door and seriously assaulted them with bladed weapons before making off.
Both the 52 and 67 year-old men were taken to Crosshouse Hospital where they were treated for serious injuries.
The first suspect is described as having short blonde hair, and was of slim build.
The second suspect is described as being around 30 years old, 5ft 8 of medium/ stocky build. He had short, tidy dark hair and was clean shaven.
The men were unable to give a description of the third suspect.
All of the suspects were wearing dark clothing.
Detective Sergeant Barry Walker, Kilmarnock Police Office, said:
“This was a violent and brutal attack on two men who were left with potentially scarring injuries.
“We believe this to be a targeted attack which took place in a flat in a residential area nearby an open park area. Where were you on Sunday night? Did you hear or see anybody either before the attack took place, or fleeing from the scene afterwards?
“It is vital that we find the persons responsible and would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen a group of men acting suspiciously to come forward and contact us.”
