A volunteer at a Glasgow soup kitchen has allegedly been threatened following a misunderstanding about sandwiches.
It is understood the incident happened around 8pm last Thursday, January 5, when a man was attending the Homeless Project Scotland (HPS) station on Argyle Street.
Police were called over reports that a volunteer had been threatened, with staff at the project, which feeds hundreds of people every day, alleging the man was trying to take all of their sandwiches.
Colin McInnes, chairman of HPS, said: “On Thursday there was a gentleman attending the soup kitchen who verbally abused and tried to attack our volunteers under the bridge.
“He was trying to clear the sandwiches off the table. He was told he was to take some sandwiches and leave some for others because we didn’t have a lot to go around. We were trying to spread it out so everyone could get something to eat.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We were made aware of a man causing a disturbance on Argyle Street in Glasgow around 7.50pm on Thursday, 5 January.
“A 36-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident. He will be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal in connection with the incident.”
