POLICE are re-appealing for information from witnesses following an attempted murder in Paisley last month.

A 42-year-old man was confronted by a man firing a weapon at him in his home in Glasgow Road on Friday, September 15. 

CCTV footage has so far revealed several people were in the area at the time and police are keen for them to get in contact.

One man, who was carrying a rucksack, has been described as tall, with dark hair in a ‘top knot’ bun.

He had a dark-coloured beard and was wearing a light-coloured jacket, with slim fitting black jeans and dark coloured training shoes. 

Two women were also in the area around the time of the incident.

One was walking a white-coloured dog, possibly a bichon frise breed, and has been described as being in her late 40s or early 50s, with a slim build.

She had fair hair and was wearing a knee-length jacket, belted at the waist, with a fur hood.

The other woman, who has been described as being in her late 30s or early 40s, had a slim build and brown, wavy, shoulder-length hair.

She was wearing a light coloured jacket, jeans and trainers and was walking a dog, possibly a terrier breed.

Officers have also identified two cars which were in the area and want to hear from anyone who may have seen them.

The first car that was found was a silver Ford Focus, registration SG12 DXH, which was found burnt out in Arkleston Road near the cemetery a short time after the attempted murder.

Officers have established this car was stolen from Somerville Place in Helensburgh between Wednesday, September 13 and Thursday, September 14.

The second car was a dark, grey coloured Audi A1 which has yet to be traced and there is a possibility it was stolen from the Cardross area between Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12.

The registration plate displayed at the time of the theft was MM1 EYY, however that may have been changed. 

Enquiries carried out have revealed the two cars were close together.

Detective Inspector David Wagstaff, who is heading up the investigation, said: “We have yet to establish a clear motive for this attack and we are piecing together the circumstances of what has happened.

"We believe the victim was the intended target and it’s imperative we trace whoever is responsible for this reckless act.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Glasgow Road, near to Penilee Road or Arkleston Road Cemetery, between 9pm and 9.45pm.

"In particular, I would ask motorists who were in the area around the time to check their dash cam footage as they may have unwittingly captured footage of the Ford Focus or Audi A1 which could prove significant.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact officers at Paisley CID via 101.
