ATTEMPTED ROBBERY – EDINBURGH ROAD, GLASGOW
Police Scotland is appealing for information from the public after an attempted robbery
at a supermarket on Edinburgh Road, Glasgow.
Around 6.50 pm on Tuesday 31 July 2018 a man walked into a Farmfoods
supermarket and threatened a woman working on the checkout with a weapon,
before making off on foot empty handed.
The man is described as white, 5ft 11, of slim build and was wearing a black hoodie, with a scarf covering his face, gloves, jeans and black shoes.
Detective Inspector Alasdair Barlow, Divisional Robbery Unit, said:
“Although nobody required medical treatment, this was a terrifying incident for the staff and the customers within the shop.
“We know there was a number of people within the shop at the time and would urge anyone who hasn’t spoken to us already to come forward. We would also urge anyone who was in the area of Edinburgh Road last night who may have seen a man matching the description before or after the incident to contact us.
“Anyone with information should contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 3130 of Tuesday 31 July 2018. Alternatively you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.”
