The 46-year-old was punched and kicked multiple times by a man and a woman in Netherhill Road, near to Byres Crescent, just before 8am on Saturday.

The woman has also been described as 5ft 6in of slim build, with long, dark brown hair. She was wearing a pink zip-up top and black leggings.

Detective Constable Jennifer Piggott, of Paisley Police Office, said: "There was a violent attack which had left a man in hospital.

"Officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries and checking CCTV to trace those responsible.

"We are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at the time who may have seen something that could help in our enquiries.

“It is quite a residential area near a local newsagents and bakery and therefore people would have been getting up and ready for the day nearby.

“We would urge anyone with information to come forward and contact us.”
Anyone who can help should call police on 101.
