Glasgow gang wars esculate into murder rival gangs armed with blades, including a Samurai sword, clashed in a terrifying street fight.


17:19 |

Glaswegian was killed as rival gangs armed with blades, including a Samurai sword, clashed in a terrifying street fight.Police were last night probing the murder of Charles Bowman, 32, who was dead on arrival at hospital after the bloody battle on Sunday night.Four other men were injured as the two gangs clashed in a normally quiet street in the east end of Glasgow.One of them was Douglas Tennent, 37, who innocently stopped to offer help and was stabbed four times in the face in front of his terrified family - including his three-year-old daughter Charli.Locals in Carmyle, Glasgow, believe the battle was between rival gangs from the area and the nearby Westburn area of Cambuslang, where murder victim Charles lived.In Westburn last night, tributes were being left at his home by grieving friends and family.A Rangers flag hung over a car in his driveway, with messages and tributes from his loved ones.In the main street of Westburn, a makeshift memorial was created with Old Firm shirts, scarves and flags all bearing tributes.One message read: "Goodbye Uncle Chick. Rest in Peace."Police said last night: "Police were called to a report of a largescale disturbance in Carmyle Avenue near to Gardenside Avenue. On arrival, they found five men injured."The men were all taken to local hospitals. The 32-year-old man was pronounced dead on arrival."The four other men are being treated for their injuries."It is believed police were already on the scene when Douglas was attacked.One witness said: "This is a peaceful street and nothing like this ever happens here."Two cars full of men came screeching into the street.
"Then they all jumped out with bottles, baseball bats, knives and bricks and started laying into each other. The battle went on for about half an hour and by the time the police arrived there were guys lying bleeding in the street.
"Then a car came into the street, driven by a man with a female passenger and a kid in the back.
"He stopped and rolled down his window.
"Some guy who looked as if he had just been watching then sauntered over to the car, as if he was going to speak to the driver."The next thing I noticed was the woman jumping out of the car screaming that her husband had been stabbed.
"When his attacker ran away, I saw there was blood everywhere and he was in a really bad state."
Douglas's partner Patricia Bradley was too upset to speak last night at their home just a few streets from the scene of the battle.His sister Janice said he was having surgery last night on his face and added: "His hand was also damaged when he lifted it to try to protect his face so he'll probably need more surgery.
"We're really shocked about what has happened, especially in such a quiet place."
A source close to the family said: "We think the guy with the knife has taken him for someone else and thought he was winding down his window to get involved."
'They all jumped out with bottles, bats and knives and layed into each other'

carmyle boys are being made out the trouble makers public need to be made aware it was the hooligans from westburn that came into carmyle looking for trouble, not carmyle boys looking for trouble. They should stay away from carmyle, not one of the westburn are welcome here

people of glasgow should b made well aware this was never a gang fight . it was 1 car with 4 boys in it who have no criminal record mearly stopping at a shop where they have many relatives who live in carmyle!!!! they were ambushed by over 15 carmyle boys and men who were waiting fully armed with knifes , bottles & bats on the arrival of shettleston boys as they had stabbed a man from there only the night before!! the relatives of the carmyle gang are mearly trying 2 excuse the discusting behavior of there family members!! Anyone who knows about carmyle will know the fact that the carmyle gang have been running riot in the streets of carmyle for almost a year, including terrorising there own community!!!

if charles bowman was such a animal as u say why did he have no criminal record, had never had as much as a breach of the peace against his name!! people should knw 1 of his murderers who is a 54 yr old man has been in prison for murder b4, & some of the others have bn accused of arson & also knife related inncidents, hardly the act of a quite community?????

Charles bowman was a loving family man who worked and never left his house. He was not a violent man at all far from this. These animals which acted that terrible day are trying to find excuses for what they have done. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE SOMONE ELSE'S LIFE NO ONE. They have not only takin charles's life but ruined many others that of his fiance, mother ,father etc this is a man who was due to get married and start a family who just happenned to stop at the wrong shop (which is terrible in this day and age)and now being made out to be some gangland member. soo untrue. Anyone who truly knew charles bowman will know this could never be further from the truth. His funeral said it all over 1000 people turned out what does this say about him. Carmyle people are living in fear of these gangs which rule there community they should take a stand together and get rid of this rubbish which is bringing there community down with drugs, drink and violence.

Charles Bowman was on his way home and cut through Carmyle to get some stuff from the shop as the local shop in Westburn is closed on a Sunday afternoon. He paid for this with his life, is Carmyle out of bounds for outsiders to use the shop. There has always been a nasty way about the way Carmyle boys used knives for over 25 years the perpetraters interlopers original born and bred people frown upon the death of Charles Bowman He was a good man with no criminal record not even a breach of peace. The evil that killed the boy deserve what ever is coming to them they will rot in hell nobody has the right to brutally murder a human being the way John Ferran, Brian Gillen and Stephen Carmichael did they are such low life people that Ferrans wife and daughter pull down the flowers poor Charles's mum leaves at the church he died they are thugs with a history of violence funny Charles had no history of being anything exept a lovely human being there was over a thousand people attended his funeral I doubt if he was anything else but the gentlemen he was there would not have been as many there to say goodbye. What these evil bad men did to him was brutal and evil they did not stop till he was dead they intended killing the boy nobody deserves to die at the hands of others nobody has the right. My love goes to his Fiance

for a man so innocent why did the evil bastard leave carmyle then return with swords & weapons to not only attack carmyle boys enjoying their summer day in a back garden like the rest of glasgow, but also woman & babies sitting in their cars. this is the work of a VICIOUS ANIMAL a DERANGED MAN. the people of carmyle lives have been turned upside down by theese thugs and as for his grieving family they have done nothing but intimidate families of the involved. as an innocent party who meerly lives in carmyle nothing like the such has ever happened in the past & as a resident of carmyle for many years the thugs ruling the community is new to me!!! theese Westburn thugs are well known for their brutality in the cambuslang area of glasgow. it is known fact that Mr Bowman (the innocent man as you all reffer to him was not shy to using a gun, knife & what ever else came to his hands also a well knowen steriod & cocaine user), Sounds like a gentleman if you ask me!!!!!!! he may not have a criminal record but just because he has been lucky enough to get away with his crimes for so long!!!! Mr Bowman & his friends came to Carmyle to KILL & unfortunately for them their plan backfired.

Karrie said...

Is it not a fact on of Charles Bowman's murderers has already taken a life before it is common knowledge that the Ferran family are scum and frowned upon by the GOOD people off Carmyle who see the flowers pulled down from their windows week in week out how sad they think it makes them look cool in fact it makes them look like the scum they are

Nobody has the right to kill another said...

Human life is sacred nobody has the right to kill another human being more so the way Charles Bowman was killed it is public belief this young man was indeed a gentlemen who was clean living never took drugs or got involved in anything he was a good one more than can be said about the evil filth that took his l,ife scum of the earth that get into regular running battles with Shettleston boys and fought for years at the bridge with anyone they could they have never been knife of sword shy and have been territorial for years, old Carmyle I believe WAS a lovely place to like quiet and safe until about 25 years ago when some shit families slipped through the net with some good ones, they believe people like them they hate them they are like poison they destry everything they come into contact with I heard the guy was lying on ground unable to defend himselve and they repeatedly and cowardly attacked him continually stabbing him that doesnt sount like someone waving a weapon about,it sounds more like a man a liberty was being taken on. I heard that the person who hit the car with a weapon was a guy called Gillen and they are blaming Chick Bowmanbecause he is not here to tell other wise how cowardly. I am disgusted to hear his poor mothers flowers are being pulled down how sad they must be real scum to do this, there is a fine line you dont cross however if these people have no respect for human life then flowers from a mourning mother is apparently a target for their guilt. Its easy to blame everything on a deceasd person cowards will do that it's Trying to justify their actions, however murder is murder my heart goes to the Bowman family not the people of Carmyle you see they will get on with their lives The Bowman family have lost something presious a son a fiance a brother uncle etc no I make no apologies for thinking his murderers are the scum of the earth who deserve whatever comes to them which I hope is Life bring back hanging a life for a life

Charles Bowman a loving family man, r u for real!! My mate was viciously attacked in cambuslang main st in 2006 by our loving charles and his 2 mates. the guy is a totaly loser, his family went through hell coz this man. As for th carmyle boys terrorising the locals, iv stayed here all my life and can say we have never had any bother here before apart from when that thug and his mates decided to come down and terrorise innocent woman and children. The guy was a scumbag, involved in allsorts. If they were down to go to thte shops in carmyle then y not go to their local shops in cambuslang but yet come down to carmyle fully armed with all sorts of weapons. MMMM bit wierd. The guy was 32 years of age and still running around like a teenage ned with a sword. Now everyone in carmyle has been intimidated by his 'grieving' family. Y dnt they just stay away they aint welcome here they r just looking for more trouble in their drug funded cars. Keep the hooligans out we want our quite village back to normal!!

wot decent 30 odd year old man has a stupid arguement with a wee guy at least 10 years younger than him then comes back down with 2 cars full of guys n weapons? it was nvr a gang fight it was a so called hardman thinking hes a wideo n no one can touch him, until he got his own sword took off him n stabbed with it. n how many ppl had a he done with sword b4 this happned to him? a few i'd say. n as for him no havn a criminal record, thats wit happens wen ur family pay off the police! deserved everything he got. and as for the poor greiving family? bunch of idiots, sittin outside peoples houses staring in windows intimidating ppl, ppl who werent even involved and jst happen to live in carmyle! i hav absolutley no sympathy for any of them.

angela said...

You may claim that Charles Bowman never had a criminal record but it is FACT that this is not the first time Charles Bowman set out to kill someone using similar methods - Rest in peace KEVIN STANLEY X

As for the so called greiving mother!! A personly no sum mothers who unfortunately hav lost there children through no fault of there own,howcome his mother was out the day after her bhoy died threatning people(innocent little bhoys)Greif my arse. yous are aw living in your own fuking bubbles. It will out at trail(watch this space ya bunch a fukin illiterate bunch a tit's. the carmyle bhoy's havnt fought wae the shettelston boy's for over 40yrs,haha!. The only SCUM in this situation is the people from westburn(yuk!). if that fat grass would have avoided Carmyle that day, he would still b here, but for how long. Its obviously his luv of drink,drug's,violence and weapons was bound to bring his life to a short end. All a want to say being an innocent bystander, y'r so called gent was runnin about like a mad'dog,who had to be brought down(with his own sword)and any weapons that were present that day was brought into Carmyle.

its rediculous they way people are disrespecting a dead guy! at the end of the day what happened has happened an i do feel sorry 4 the family whose lost a son,brother fiance etc! NOBODY deserves 2die in the way he did! but arguing like petty children isnt going to get anyone anywhere! let the guy rest in peace! the truth will come out at the trial & justice will be served- (AT COURT).How many lives have 2be lost 2hiddeous crimes like this before someone realises its just not worth it?? im from carmyle btw!

FED UP! said...

does anyone know the date of the trial?

Karrie said...

Well said a lot of respect to you!! but the way these thugs families have atempted to wind up the Charles family is evil its bad enough they killed him but to wind up his family shows them for the people they really are I mean they dont know his family yet make up stories about them and Charles Bowman. I would like to point out that John Paul McNally was charge with the murder of Kev Stanley and stood trial everyone knows that yet they say it was Charles, you see they try to justify what they did but how can you murder is murder nobody has the right to take anyones life.then call him and his family drug takers yet Charles Bowman never put a drug near his mouth his whole life he was anti drug never believed in it so what they dont know they make up. but well done for making sense

Chick never took drugs, steroids or witever! Yous are tryin tae make your Carmyle arseholes look as though they were stickin up for themselves in self defence! Its laughable really, tae leave a guy tae lie dyin like that in the streets is nothin short of evil! & tae attempt tae murder the 3 others?! Fukin scum is puttin it lightly.

They never lost a son, fiance, brother etc. Get a grip! Justice will be served! RIP CHARLES BOWMAN, A LEGEND!!!

T said...

can't believe how deluded you people are to claim chick bowman was an innocent whiter than white gentleman. he was a liberty taking scumbag.the only suprise is that with his lifestyle of violence and grassing that he made it to 32. the world is a better and safer place with him gone

S . said...

T your a leg-end ;-)! And for that so called 'fat high court grass' if you actually read the story behind that trial youd find out the truth. Its laughable really the way people try and justify scum murderin decent folk. 3 familys goin through 'unnecessary hassle' hahahahaha. The only family goin through anythin unnecessary are the Bowmans, and thats unnecessary sufferin because of the murderin scum of Carmyle. One arsehole took the blame for Charles' death while his 2 pals are happy tae sit back and allow him tae be the jails main bitch. Their time will come ;-)!

bonny said...

the only bitch in jail is BURNS after all he waz the 1 that described in great detail the true events of that day how they went back tae the so called gentlemans house and collected the LETHAL weapons, after BOWMANS bro refused to go back n fight wee boyz STEF MORAN drove him to his death - drove over him twice then left him to die - some mates he hid ehh????

bonny said...

S think it's u that needs to read the story WIN WIN by William Gage page 129 "IB AND CB had made a number of statements and with every contact with the police in the lead up to my arrest they had given more detailed and damning statements that got more ridiculous as they go along" HIGH COURT GRASSES the lot of them so the more uze deny the more comes out and trust me Gage is only 1 of the many lives that the Bowman family have ruined!!

ME said...

does anyone remember about six years ago when charels doogooder bowman came into carmyle in a car with his mates and jumed a young boy and broke his arms with a baseball bat in broad daylight at the old chip shop short fuckin memories
