“This was despicable behaviour which will not be tolerated. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances leading up to the assault,” said Detective Sergeant Gordon Walker of the Glasgow City Centre Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
“There would have been a number of people in the area around the time of the incident and we are keen to talk to anyone who may have seen anything or who may have recorded the incident on their mobile phones,” he added.
“The incident took place right in the middle of the roadway so we are also appealing to anyone who may have dashcam footage of what happened to let us know.”
