DETECTIVES are appealing for witnesses after a vehicle was deliberately driven at three people in Greenock.
One of them — a 35-year-old man — was hit but suffered only minor injuries.
The incident involved a silver Ford Connect van and happened on Inverkip Road near the car wash at Barr’s Cottage about 4pm on Friday.
Police are treating the attack as attempted murder. Detective Sergeant Stuart Young said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in area around the time of the incident to contact us.
“This incident could have been much worse — to mount a pavement and directly drive at people is incredibly dangerous and unacceptable.
“I’m urging anyone with any information on this incident to contact us. In particular, I would ask anyone with a dash-cam to please check their footage as it may have captured footage which could assist us in our investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 2530 of 4 December, 2020, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 through which information can be given anonymously.
