Man left hurt after two thugs broke into Lanarkshire house and launched violent attack before fleeing in SUV

Cops say that around 8:30am on November 2, two men forced their way into a house in Springwell Crescent, Blantyre and attacked a 36-year-old man.

A 55-year-old woman was also in the house and she was pushed by one of the yobs.

The victim was taken to Hairmyres Hospital with a head injury.

Meanwhile the woman was uninjured but has been left badly shaken by the experience.

The first suspect is around 6 ft. tall with a heavy build. He was wearing a black woolly tammy hat and a yellow hi-vis vest. He was wearing orange gloves and was wearing a black scarf across his face to conceal his identify.

He was wearing dark coloured clothing and bright blue trainers. He too covered his face with a scarf.

Enquiries carried out so far have revealed that a blue coloured SUV vehicle with a black roof was used by the suspects.

Detective Constable Andrew Fearnside said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the suspects or saw a blue coloured SUV type vehicle in the area to contact us.
