Appeal for witnesses regarding incident in Glasgow

The Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) is appealing for witnesses to come forward after the death of a 43-year-old man following an incident in Saracen Street, Glasgow, on Thursday 22 December 2016.

Investigators are particularly interested to speak to a young woman who was wearing a dark parka style jacket with a hood, dark trousers and grey and white trainers. She had dark hair tied up in a top knot style and was standing near the bus stop in Saracen Street at the time of the incident.

They would also like to speak to two men who were standing near the bus stop.

A spokesman for the Investigations Team said:

"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in Saracen Street between 1900 hours and 1930 hours on Thursday, 22 December 2016 and who may have been standing at or close to the bus stop located in the east footpath next to the Church of Scotland and who may have witnessed the incident.

"In particular we would like to speak to a woman who was standing outside the bus stop. The woman was in her 20s or 30s and was wearing a dark coloured Parker style jacket with a hood, dark coloured trousers and grey and white trainers. The woman had dark coloured hair which was tied up in a top knot style. She got on a southbound number 8A First Glasgow bus at 1926 hours.
