Two thugs are behind bars for a horror machete attack which went viral online.

Jordan Logan, 28, and Cameron Carnwath, 25, were captured on mobile phone footage lashing out at Christopher Foy in Glasgow's Dennistoun on May 30 2023.

A judge heard how the pair struck amid "escalating tension" between them and Foy.

Foy - who has since passed due to unrelated causes - suffered multiple wounds to his back, head, limbs and a suspected broken leg.

Logan and Carnwath now face lengthy jail-terms having pleaded guilty to assaulting the man to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of his life.

The pair - who already had a record for violence and weapons - will be sentenced in July.

Cameron Ferguson, 33, was also accused of being involved in the attack.

But, his not guilty plea was accepted and he instead admitted having a machete in a public place. He was today jailed for two years.

Prosecutor Kath Harper today told the High Court in Glasgow: "The incident was a culmination of escalating tension between the accused, Foy and his associates.

"It is captured on mobile phone footage with one of the three filming themselves and posting it on Snapchat verbally abusing Foy after the assault.

"The incident has had media attention with the videos being repeatedly shared on social media."

Foy was in the area that night with others. He was said to have had a "large bladed weapon" on him.

Carnwath - clutching a machete - and an unknown associate with a baseball bat then appeared from behind parked cars and ran at Foy.

Logan and Ferguson arrived on the scene having climbed a wall.

There was then a fight in full view of nearby flats which saw Foy being struck with machetes, knives and the bat by Logan, Carnwath as well as the other male.

The court was told how Foy was heard "screaming" in the graphic footage that was captured.

Ferguson - who had his own leg injury - stood at the top of a hill smoking a cigarette as the attack occurred.

Miss Harper: "He remains there as the others walk away taunting Foy on camera.

"All suspects then walked over the grass area and climbed a fence."

Foy tried to stand, but ended up slumped on the ground.

He was later treated at hospital for a number of wounds.

Miss Harper: "A doctor confirmed that they could have been, in total, life threatening."

Foy refused to give a statement to police at the time.

But, the advocate depute said that, as a result of the social media clips, it lead to the trio being identified.

Lord Arthurson told Logan and Carnwath: "You have pleaded guilty to an extremely serious offence and will be receiving a significant custodial sentence."

The video footage captured will be played at the next hearing.

The case was adjourned for reports.
