A man in his 40s is in hospital after being stabbed in a Caledonian Road supermarket.
The victim was knifed in the leg in Nisa just before 4.15pm and is now being treated for his injuries, which are not life-threatening.
No arrests have been made and police are investigating.
Parmjeit Chopra, who runs the shop, told the Gazette: “There is blood everywhere.
“The victim came into the shop.
“Then someone else came and he [the first man] got stabbed in the store. It was very quick.
“The guy with the knife stabbed him and then ran away.
“I’m feeling really shocked and scared. The shop is closed and the police are here.
“It’s only been a few weeks since the last stabbing in the Cally Road so I don’t feel safe here.”
He estimated both men involved were in their 30s or 40s.
Nedim Bilgin, 17, was fatally stabbed on the night of January 29 near the junction with Tilloch Street. Five people have been arrested over the former Mary Magdalene Academy student’s death, but no one has yet been charged.
Anyone with information about today’s stabbing is asked to call 101 quoting reference CAD 4963 of February 25.
