Detectives at Paisley are appealing for information after a 61-year-old man was seriously assaulted at a scrap metal yard in French Street, Renfrew, at approximately 14:00 on Friday 19 October 2018.
The injured gentleman managed to make his own way to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he was treated for lacerations to his upper body.
He has since been discharged.
Paisley CID officers are still working to establish the full circumstances of this assault, however, believe that the man was the intended target of the vicious attack.
Officers have been speaking to people in the area and continue to study CCTV footage in the vicinity. From enquiries so far, two men are seen running off from French Street at the time of the assault.
Due to the location, it is believed that the attackers may have had access to a car and possibly made of from the scene in it. Officers are appealing to anyone who may have seen any suspicious vehicles in the street or indeed anyone hanging about the area prior to the attack or running off afterwards.
Any information that may assist the investigation can be passed to Paisley Police Office via 101 quoting reference number 2252 of Friday 19 October 2018.
