|Glasgow Eyes News|
Police in Glasgow are appealing for witnesses and information following an assault and robbery in the Broomhill area.
The incident happened around 11.30pm on Sunday 6 October on Broomhill Lane near to Thornwood Drive.
A 25-year-old woman was out walking her dog with a 23-year-old man when they were both assaulted by a man who then stole nine-month-old Chihuahua, Coco, and left the area in a blue Ford Fiesta.
The suspect is described as approximately 25 to 26-years-old, 5ft 4ins and of slim build. He was wearing black clothing, possibly with a hooded top, and appeared to be scruffy.
Local enquiries are ongoing and police have found the blue Ford Fiesta reported in connection with the incident which was found to have cloned plates.
Detective Constable Joseph Keith of Greater Glasgow Police said: “Although the woman did not require any hospital treatment, this has been a very traumatic incident for her. She has been left very upset and worried for the safety of her dog, Coco.
“We are keen to trace the dog and the person responsible for this and I’d urge anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen anything or anyone with information about the dogs’ whereabouts to get in touch.
