Police are searching for David McLean in connection with the hit-and-run Police Scotland

Police have released an image of a "dangerous" man suspected of attempting to murder police officers in a hit-and-run in Glasgow. The public have been warned not to approach 30-year-old David McLean and are instead asked to contact police immediately if seen.

McLean is wanted in connection with the attempted murder of constable Deborah Lawson, 30, and constable Robert Fitzsimmons, 31, who both suffered serious injuries after being deliberately driven into after stopping to speak to the occupants of a car in Drumchapel on 23 October.

McLean, of Knightswood, is described as having dark hair, which is slightly receding and swept to one side, chubby facial features and stubble.

A blue Nissan Qashqai, believed to be the vehicle used in the hit-and-run was later found on fire around three miles away in Lennox Gardens, Scotstoun.

Both the police officers remain in hospital, with Lawson understood to have undergone surgery for a shoulder injury, as well as suffering multiple rib fractures and internal bleeding.

A police spokesperson said: "Police Scotland are urgently seeking the assistance of the public to trace the following man in relation to an ongoing inquiry.

"Police are extremely anxious to trace David McLean, aged 30, from Glasgow, pictured in this image.

"Members of the public are warned not to approach this man, as police believe he may be dangerous."
